Palma, May 24 (EFE).- Javier Aguirre said this Wednesday that he joins “all the voices” that have been raised to condemn the racist chants against the Brazilian Real Madrid player Vinícius Júnior: “When racist or homophobic cries or insults of any kind, we have to stop and go; the only way that we all understand the seriousness of the matter.”
“It seems to me that we are on time. No misfortune has happened that I can remember outside the stadium, the players or the fans. You have to cut your losses and it is the best option, that we all unite. It is played in April, if you want, but this game is not played today; then it would be an important wake-up call”, stressed Aguirre at the press conference prior to Valencia’s visit to Son Moix this Thursday.
When asked if he considers that Spain is a racist country or if he has suffered some kind of discrimination during his professional career in the Spanish league, the “Basque” replied: “Spain is not a racist country, I am the son of Spaniards and I have never They told me nothing at all.”
“In the teams that I have managed I do not remember any similar image, the normal thing, come on, when you arrive by bus and the local fans do not welcome you with a red carpet, they make that famous gesture with their finger, but that happens in China or in the Arab Emirates.
