Madrid, 20 September (EFE). Atlético Madrid “categorically condemns the unacceptable chants that a minority of fans uttered outside the stadium ahead of the derby,” the club said Tuesday in a statement about racist chants.

He claims “zero tolerance for racism” and has contacted authorities to be available to identify those responsible for the screams outside the stadium.

“Racism is one of the greatest scourges of our society and unfortunately the world of football and clubs is not free from its presence. Our club has always been characterized by being an open and inclusive space for fans of different nationalities, cultures, races and social classes, and few can tarnish the image of thousands and thousands of athletes who support their team with passion and respect for the opponent. “says the rojiblanco club.

In the derby against Real Madrid last Sunday, racist chants against Vinicius were heard outside the stadium by a minority of fans.

“These chants cause us great resentment and indignation, and we will not allow anyone, hiding behind our flowers, to utter racist or xenophobic insults. At Atlético Madrid we have zero tolerance for racism, our commitment to fighting this social scourge is absolute and we will not stop until we eliminate it.” Add.

Atlético Madrid calls for reflection

Atlético also invites all professionals involved in the world of football to “think deeply”. “Fans are being asked for sanity and rationality, and yet professionals from various fields created an artificial campaign over the course of a week, lighting the fuse of controversy without measuring the impact of their actions and demonstrations,” the statement explains.

“The pain of the Rojiblanca family in connection with this event is enormous. We cannot allow anyone to associate our fans with this behavior and question our values ​​because of a minority that does not represent us. Our decision is strong and loud, and we will not stop until we expel them from the red and white family, because they cannot be part of it, ”he concludes.
