“It’s regrettable,” defends Rodrygo Vinicius after a Catalan manager’s slippage

Mikel Camps, a member of Barça’s board, then published a deleted message attacking Vinicius during the match between Braga and Real Madrid (1-2) on Tuesday in the Champions League.

A manager for FC Barcelona slipped up during the meeting between Braga and Real Madrid (1-2), Tuesday in the Champions League. Mikel Camps, a member of the Barça board, published a threatening and insulting tweet against the Brazilian winger Vinicius, the goalscorer of the match and heaven, after a series of dribbles by the latter during the match.

“It’s not racism, Vinicius deserves a slap for being a clown and putting on a show,” he wrote. “What’s the point of these useless and meaningless dribbles in the middle of the pitch?”

Xavi had asked for mutual respect

The leader quickly deleted his message that did not escape social networks. When asked about this slip in the mixed zone after the game, teammate and compatriot Rodrygo took care to measure these words, while at the same time regretting this situation.

“I don’t know what to say about it, I don’t know if I should speak because we’re always told not to,” he responded. “I’m not going to say anything, but it’s unfortunate.”

Insulting and threatening, Camps’ message above all takes the embarrassing stance of making Vinicius responsible for the racist excesses of which he is often the target. It also adds fuel to the fire three days before the Clasico between Barça and Real Madrid, Saturday (16:15, Day 11 in La Liga).

Xavi, the Barça coach, tried to calm things down between the two bitter rivals on Tuesday with his press conference ahead of hosting Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday (6.45pm). He called for “mutual respect and even admiration” between the two camps. A message that was clearly not well received by a manager at the Catalan club a few hours later.
