Mallorca ban fan for 3-years for monkey chants aimed at Vinícius and Chukwueze

March 22 – Spanish club Mallorca have handed the fan who racially insulted players Vinícius Júnior and Samu Chukwueze a three-year ban.

The fan, reportedly a 20-year-old Mallorca season ticket holder, is accused of calling Real Madrid forward Vinícius and Villarreal midfielder Chukwueze a monkey in separate Spanish league games this year.

“RCD Mallorca is against all xenophobic manifestations and will continue to work actively to eradicate this scourge,” said club president American Andy Kohlberg.

Vinícius has been subjected to insults since arriving in Spain five years ago. Valladolid recently suspended 12 season ticket holders while investigating their alleged verbal abuse of the Brazilian.

Authorities have yet to find those responsible for hanging Vinícius’ effigy from a bridge in Madrid before the derby against Atletico Madrid earlier this year.
