Indeed, the disciplinary committee of La Liga has officially decided to cancel the disciplinary consequences of this exclusion and the Brazilian striker of Real Madrid will thus be able to be on the ground against Rayo Vallecano this Wednesday evening (7:30 p.m.) at Santiago Bernabeu in as part of the 36th day of the Spanish championship.
Xavi ‘surprised’ when Vinicius’ red card was rescinded
A decision which does not seem to have been understood by Xavi Hernandez, Barça coach, questioned on the subject on Tuesday evening, after the defeat of Barça on the lawn of Real Valladolid: “Acts of racism and insults must be condemned. But there is something else: actions on the ground. It’s inevitable that there was an assault and I’m surprised they took the red away from Vinicius. You have to separate the two things that have nothing to do with each other”.
The day before, Xavi Hernandez had already given his strong support to Vinicius Junior, affirming in particular that in the event of racist insults, it would then be necessary “stop the game and go home”. For a concrete response to these inadmissible acts.
