Paul Pogba has responded to the racial slurs directed at Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid). “Racism is a mental illness,” Pogba said in a strongly worded criticism.

“It’s not the first time and it won’t be the last,” Pogba wrote on social media on Wednesday, emphasizing that “we have to make sure it doesn’t happen again”. “We have too many examples and I think we can all agree that nothing has changed,” he explained.토토사이트

“Something like bananas, animal sounds, songs directed at us (racism) is a mental illness and cannot be changed by advertisements or slogans,” Pogba emphasized. “If the institutions do not find real solutions, we must try to find them for ourselves,” he added.

Recently, the world of soccer has been abuzz with racism controversies, including one that arose from a match between Valencia and Real Madrid in the 35th round of the 2022-23 La Liga at the Mestalla on Nov. 22.

During the second half, Vinicius became enraged by a monkey chant from the Valencia crowd. Players from both teams tried to break up the confrontation, but fans threw lighters at him. “There were chants of ‘Mono’ coming from the stands,” local media reported.

After the game, Vinicius took to social media to say, “This was not the first, second, or third time. In La Liga, racism is a daily occurrence,” he criticized. He then uploaded a video of the racism he’s experienced so far, calling out the behavior in Spain. In the video, fans were seen mimicking monkeys, swearing, and throwing foreign objects.

The day before, Valencia and Real released official statements saying they would take strong action against the perpetrators of racism.
