Valverde showed respect for the rivals’ strategy to stop Vinícius’ football but criticized any gesture of racism.
“I think it’s part of football to foul a player a lot, we as teammates have to defend him, but when you talk about racism and so much anger at a player who is still 21 years old, I think you don’t think he’s a person, you can bring problems home“, he assured.
“It can be any child of any fan in the stands. You have to think about that and respect many more. You have to support your team. but when there is so much against a player, each one should look at him and not pay for the problems in his life before a young man who enjoys himself in his own way and deserves respect“he added.
