Fault confessed is half redressed. Javier Tebas had shocked in reaction to the outbreak of the Vinicius affair. The La Liga president defended the Spanish championship after the Brazilian’s accusations of racism, following the incidents he suffered in Valencia last weekend, asking him in particular not to “be manipulated”. An exchange of messages followed where the leader did not really show compassion and support for the Madrilenian, yet the victim. Faced with the outcry, he ended up admitting his wrongs at the microphone of ESPN in Brazil.

“When a lot of people get the message a certain way, they’re right. So I have to apologise. (…) I did not want to attack Vinicius, but if most people understood it that way, I must apologize. It was not my intention. I expressed myself badly, at a bad timehe admits. If I hurt some, who thought I was racist, it’s far from being the reality. As I said before, we have denounced people. We did it because we don’t want racism in football. We don’t want racism with a player who is going to be, who is a world star, Vinicius. We are not a racist league, we are a league that protects black players.”
