Saturday’s match between Valencia and Real Madrid Soccer Jerseys Cheap has as its main protagonist the return of Vinicius Junior to Mestalla for the first time since that fateful day last May, when the Brazilian striker was the target of racist insults by a small section of the home fans in the south stand of the Mario Kempes.

Valencia captain José Gayá recalls the incident in an interview.

“I was trying to move him a little bit away from the stands. At the time I didn’t know they had made those gestures to him or that they had said anything to him. I didn’t hear it. When Vinicius gets in people’s faces and goes towards them, what I tried to do was push him away. But at that moment I didn’t know what I saw later, the gestures of one or two people. But at that moment I didn’t know.

Gayá: “Valencia not racist, blame idiots.”

“I thought it was very unfair the way Valencia and the Valencianista fans were treated afterwards. I’ve been here for ten years and nothing like that has ever happened before. It’s true that there were four or five who were foolish, that’s the reality, and Valencia have acted in the best way they can act, which is to kick them out. Those people will no longer be able to return to the stadium, but I believe that Valencia and the city and all the people are an example of fans in everything. You can’t say that Valencia fans are racist because four or five imbeciles did that. It seems very unfair to me.

There is likely to be a highly charged atmosphere at the Mestalla on Saturday, and Valencia will be hoping to take advantage of that to get a positive result against the Real Madrid Kids Soccer Kit more than anything else, all involved hope that this time there will not be a repeat incident.
