“It wasn’t the first time, nor the second, nor the third. Racism is normal in La Liga,” Vinicius wrote on social media.

“The competition thinks it’s normal, the [Spanish Football] Federation does too and the opponents encourage it. I’m so sorry.

“The championship that once belonged to Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi today belongs to racists.

“A beautiful nation, which welcomed me and which I love, but which agreed to export the image of a racist country to the world. I’m sorry for the Spaniards who don’t agree, but today, in Brazil, Spain is known as a country of racists.
