Didier Drogba names ‘the only way’ Vinicius can defend himself against racist abuse

Vinicius Junior has long been subject to racial abuse, enduring slurs and inappropriate gestures from rival fans in Spain.

Former Chelsea icon Didier Drogba, who also suffered from such abuse during his career, urged action to help protect the Real Madrid star.

“What Vinicius experiences today is the result of the globalized world we are living in, of social networks, of the people who hide in their mobile phones to tell you unpleasant things, to incite hatred. Strong measures need to be taken in this regard.”

“But for now, he will have to arm himself with courage and continue to perform at his best because, for the moment, it is the only way to defend himself, being among the best in the world. ”

Well, that is sound advice. And so far, Vinicius has been doing just that.

Despite missing several months due to injuries, he remains one of the team’s and the league’s most prolific players with 18 goals and 8 assists in 28 appearances for Los Blancos, earning multiple accolades in the process
