Inaki Willams denounces racism following abuse on Vinicius Jr

Black Stars forward Inaki Williams has condemned and called for a stop to racism following the abuse of his fellow La Liga star Vinicius Jr.

In a league clash against Valencia on Sunday, the Real Madrid winger was subjected to racial chanting from the fans of the opponent at the Estadio de Mestalla.

Vinicius was later sent off after a bust-up erupted following the abuse which triggered the emotions of the Brazilian who later slammed the authorities of the championship for being lenient on racists.


Williams who has also been subjected to such abuse in the past took to Twitter to condemn the acts while calling for a collective effort to end racism.

“Racism is inadmissible in any circumstance, in football, and in society. Let’s get this over with. NO TO RACISM” he tweeted.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino also reacted to the incident by condemning and expressing support for Vinicius Jr.

Meanwhile, Williams scored over the weekend for Athletic Bilbao to increase his goal tally to 10 in 33 matches and would hope to replicate his recent form when he returns to the Black Stars in June for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar and the Central African Republic.
