Real Madrid star forward Vinicius Jr. has been subjected to racial abuse during his side's win over Real Valladolid on Friday night at the Jose Zorrilla Stadium. On Tuesday, LaLiga has filed charges over the hate crimes against the 22-year-old Brazilian and added that it would "eradicate any kind of violence, racism or xenophobia inside and outside stadiums."

Videos on social media showed fans throwing objects and chanting racial slurs at Vinicius Jr., when he was substituted in the 88th minute. Later, the young Brazilian sensation accused LaLiga of not taking necessary steps against the racist fans at matches.

After the incident, LaLiga released a statement on Tuesday that it has filed charges against the racist abuse of Vinicius to the "relevant judicial, administrative and sporting bodies." 

LaLiga stated, "A criminal charge for hate crimes has been filed with the Valladolid Magistrates’ Courts, supported by audiovisual evidence gathered in the investigation carried out through images and audio clips published on open sources. LaLiga has also asked the Valladolid Magistrates’ Courts to transfer the complaint to the Public Prosecutor’s Office for Hate Crimes so that it can participate in the case."

Moreover, the Spanish league outlined further measures to "eradicate" racism and asserted, "The number of LaLiga integrity officers present at matches where there is a risk of racist insults will be increased, in order to maximise detection and identification of this type of behaviour, which has no place in sport.

"Furthermore, in stadiums where there is considered to be a risk of possible racist behaviour in the stands, messages will be broadcast over the public address system and advertising hoardings surrounding the pitch to combat and condemn racism," LaLiga added.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid will next face Villareal at the El Madrigal stadium on Saturday, January 7 in the LaLiga. Defending champions Real Madrid are levelled with arch-rivals Barcelona at the top of the LaLiga standings with 38 points in 15 matches.
