Vinicius Jr will not be suspended for Valencia red card

Vinicius will now be available to play Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday night.

The Brazilian winger was suspended in Real’s last game against Valencia for hitting Valencia’s Hugo Duro in stoppage time.

He was racially abused for five games after a ruling by the Spanish Football Federation on Tuesday and his suspension would be overturned.

The committee has ordered the closure of Mario Kempas stand for five matches and imposed a fine of €45,000.

Vinicius made a strong statement by saying La Liga “belongs to racists” and several players from around the globe have offered their support.

The Brazilian winger has frequently been targeted in La Liga and the latest incident came at Valencia’s Mestalla.

“The RFEF Competition Committee considers that the referee’s assessment was determined by the omission of the entirety of the play that took place, which affected the refereeing decision.”

“The fact that he [the referee] was deprived of a decisive part of the facts led him to adopt an arbitrary decision. And this is because it was impossible for him to properly assess what happened.”
