Brazil furious and shocked by controversial statement about Vinicius Junior

Decidedly, the behavior of the stars of the Seleção is much talked about. In Haifa, Neymar managed to pick up a yellow card for celebrating a goal against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League. Which had the gift of greatly annoying the number 10 of PSG. No one has indeed understood why the Brazilian has been warned for a celebration he has been doing since the start of the season.

In Spain, it is Vinicius Junior who is at the center of the debates. Lately, the Real Madrid player has been criticized for overly provocative behavior towards his opponents. The merengue locker room would have even taken it over to reframe it. But last night, these are the comments made by player agent Pedro Bravo on the set of the Chiringuito de Jugones who make people talk.

Vinicius Junior in the viewfinder

Asked about Madrid’s number 20 celebrations, the latter said: “You have to respect the opponent. When you score your opponent’s goal, if you want to dance the samba, you’ll do it in Brazil. Here, all you have to do is respect other players and stop monkeying around. » As you will have understood, qualifying Vinicius Junior as a monkey made more than one jump. Especially in Brazil. “Football is not the place to pour out hatred and even less racism. We have to fight this! We are with you Vini Jr”posted the Brazilian media TNT Sports Brasil.

Globoesporte also relayed the news and even Neymar reacted to support his national team-mate. “ Dribble, dance and be yourself! Get over it man, we’ll dance together to your next goal”, posted the Paris Saint-Germain star on Instagram this Friday morning. Faced with the controversy, Pedro Bravo quickly reacted on his Twitter account. “I want to clarify that the phrase ‘monkey’ which I misused to describe Vinicius’ goal celebration dance was done metaphorically (‘doing stupid things’). My intention was not to offend anyone, I sincerely apologize. Sorry ! » End of the controversy?

Not really, because many Auriverdes internationals have also stepped up, like Bruno Guimarães. “That idiot must be in jail!” he has no excuse! If this guy says that on live TV, imagine what he must say when he’s not there. Incomprehensible if this citizen is not arrested. » Ditto for Reinier. “We are with you Vini. I like you. The place of the racist is in prison! this guy is disgusting”.
