Vinicius, 22, saw red after the VAR showed him catching Hugo Duro’s face with his arm.

Although the Valencia striker was not penalized for having recently put the Brazilian in a headlock.

After the game, the Real Madrid star claimed Spain is a “country of racists”.

He recounted abuse from home fans during his side’s 1-0 defeat at the Mestalla Stadium.

Vinicius drew the referee’s attention to the alleged perpetrators, after which the game was temporarily suspended for about nine minutes.

Los Blancos’ star winger applauded sarcastically and gave a peace sign to the home crowd as he left the pitch.

He doesn’t have to serve out the five-game ban after the RFEF competition committee lifted it, but insists the red card was correctly issued.

The committee released the following statement, which reveals that Vinicius was subjected to horrific racial abuse from people at the stadium.


The red card read: “However, after looking at the pictures provided by VAR, the referee changed his criteria, nullifying the yellow card and showing him a red card.”

“Such a decision would be determined by the SALA-VAR skipping the entire game without showing the aggression shown seconds earlier by players 19 and 25 of the local team who grabbed his neck, leaving the excluded player , “In a desperate attempt to free the opposing player’s arm from his neck before the imminent threat of suffocation threatens, he instinctively throws the opposing player loose.”

“To add to all this, according to the information published by the RFEF itself in the press, the VAR referee would have been fired for cutting up the images sent to the referee.”

“It is a repeated criterion of this Competition Committee that the assessment of a manifest substantive error in the arbitral act requires the production of evidence establishing beyond any reasonable doubt the non-existence of the fact recorded in the record” or its manifest arbitrariness.”

Valencia will also be forced into a partial closure of Mario Kempes’ South Stand at the Mestalla Stadium.

According to this, however, the LaLiga side are expected to appeal against the sanction Get over.

Meanwhile in Spain, seven people have been arrested on suspicion of racially insulting Vinicius Jr and hanging a likeness of the Real Madrid winger on a bridge near the club’s training ground.
