Pepa and the racist insults to Vini Jr.: “It’s prehistoric. It’s a shame and it’s not allowed”

Pepa, Portuguese coach of Cruzeiro, came out in defense of Vinícius Jr. and classified the racist insults that the player has faced in LaLiga as “prehistoric”. The incidents reached “shameful” proportions during the last game between Real Madrid and Valencia, as we have already noticed.

“It’s prehistoric. A shame. I’m a person of color, I’m black with great pride. I went through situations of racism. What I have to say is that it’s shameful, it’s prehistoric. It’s not acceptable,” said Pepa after the match against Cuiabá, which resulted in a defeat for Cruzeiro by 0-1, in a duel between Portuguese coaches.

Deyverson, a forward who played for Benfica B and Belenenses and scored the winning goal for the team led by António Oliveira, also showed support for his compatriot.

“Vinicius Jr. went through a very difficult time in Spain. A lot of strength for him, may God bless him. He is having a great championship for Real Madrid. He is a person for whom I have great affection. Racism is something extremely ugly and not should exist. Lots of power for him.”
