Vinicius Jr is right: La Liga is facilitating Spanish football's racism problem, not stopping it
Hats off to Javier Tebas! On an evening when a stadium full of idiots at Mestalla racially abused Vinicius Jr, the president of La Liga still managed to once again look like the most ignorant man in Spanish football. Less than an hour after the Real Madrid winger had rightly slated the authorities for doing nothing to tackle one of the biggest problems facing the game today, Tebas posted a response of staggering stupidity.
"We have tried to explain to you what La Liga is and what it can do in cases of racism, but you have not shown up to either of the two agreed dates that you yourself requested," he wrote on Twitter. "Before criticising and insulting La Liga, you need to inform yourself properly, Vinicius. Don't let yourself be manipulated and make sure you understand the work we have been doing together."
The implication that the onus is somehow on Vinicius to tackle Spain's horrific racism problem was truly staggering.
