FilGoal | News | After the Atletico fans attacked him.. Konya explodes: the damned post by Vinicius was not for Kookie

Atlético Madrid striker Mateus Cunha exploded on his Twitter account, hours after his team’s defeat against Real Madrid.

Atletico Madrid fell by two goals to one at the Metropolitano Stadium in front of its capital city rivals, on Sunday evening.

And the account of the “Carousel” radio program published a video of Konya dancing with Vinicius Junior while entering the match, which angered the Atletico Madrid fans, who attacked him fiercely in the comments.

Konya comes out and replies:

Vinicius’ damn post was never directed at Cookie, but at the racist who spoke over the microphone on a TV show.

Anyone who has seen Koki’s interview will know that what our captain said is true, everyone can do whatever they like when they score, but any opposing team fans wouldn’t like watching someone dance in their stadium.

What I really wanted was to score, help my teammates, and dance to the delight of my fans.

Let’s not misplace the problems, nobody wants to put in more effort than the players, and seeing a match like this after a defeat just drives you crazy.

I am grateful for all the affection I have received and I will do everything I can to increase it. I am not a person who is used to talking on social media, but it crosses barriers, you have a family after all. We are working and doing everything we have on the field.”

Konya came as a substitute in the second half, which saw Atletico Madrid reduce the teams with the goal of Mario Hermoso, but it was not enough to return in the match.

Vinicius’ celebration of dancing sparked a great controversy in Spain, especially after it was subjected to racist comments from several parties.

Real Madrid issued a statement against racism against its player, Vinicius Junior.

The text of Real Madrid’s statement was as follows::

Real Madrid rejects all kinds of xenophobic racist behavior and expressions in the field of football, sports and life in general, such as the unfortunate statements made in the past hours about our player Vinicius Junior.

Real Madrid would like to show all their love and support to Vinicius Junior, being a player who understands football as an attitude towards life based on joy, respect and sportsmanship.

Football, the most universal sport, must be an example of values ​​and coexistence.

The club has directed its legal department to take legal action against anyone who uses racist expressions against our players.

The statements of Pedro Bravo, head of the Spanish Players’ Agents Association, about Vinicius Junior, the Real Madrid star, sparked a state of anger and support for the Brazilian player.

The beginning came from the statements of the Atletico Madrid star Koke before the two teams met in the derby of the Spanish capital, who talked about the possibility of a problem if he scored and celebrated in his dancing way.

Bravo picked up the thread more sharply. Addressing Vinicius, he said: “You have to respect the opponent. If you want to dance, go to the samba hall in Brazil. In Spain you have to respect your competitors and stop behaving like a monkey.”

Bravo may have meant dancing as “monkey”, but that doesn’t make a difference now, that notorious description has long been used by racists to describe black players, so dance is no longer the focus of this controversy.

The first shot was fired by Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimarães, saying: “This idiot should leave the place arrested. No excuses. If that’s what he says on air, imagine what he says outside. It’s unimaginable if he isn’t arrested.”

Neymar, the star of Paris Saint-Germain, quickly joined the matter, saying: “Dance Vinnie Jr. Dribble and dance and be yourself, be happy your way. With the next goal we will dance.”

As for Pele, the Brazilian football legend, wrote on Twitter: “The ball is happiness. It is a real dance and party. Although racism still exists, we will not allow it to stop us from smiling. We will continue to fight against racism in this way: we fight for our right to be Be happy.”

Also, Eder Militao, the defender of Real Madrid and the Brazil national team, said: “Brother Vinicius, celebrating goals is your right, and a racist comment will not take that away from you. Count on me. More victories are coming in football and beyond, and always the utmost respect for each of us.”

Finally, the Brazilian Football Confederation wrote on Twitter: “There will be dancing and dribbling, but above all respect. On Thursday night (September 15) our player Vinicius Junior was subjected to racist statements. The Brazilian Federation shows its solidarity and support.”
