Racist calls versus Ago dos Santos at an away game in Spain have triggered a wave of solidarity with the Brazilian playmaker of the Bundesliga club Ratiopharm Ulm.
Be strong, my sibling, tweeted football star Vinicius Junior from Real Madrid.
The North American professional league NBA also condemned the event: There is no place for bigotry, neither in s nor in society.
Ago Dos Santos was clearly noticeable as a monkey several times in the European Cup game on Tuesday at Juventus Badalona (76:82) in video images.
Genuine star Vinicius Junior supports Dos Santos
Beginning to punish these individuals, or it becomes as in the past, wrote the Brazilian Vinicius Junior, who has actually recently been victim of racist hostility.
Dos Santos, Ulm leading scorer of the video game, stated in a video message: Thank God I didn’t hear it, because I do not know how I would have responded.
His specialist firm called Ulm to request sanctions to the European Association.
