According to Reuters, Vinicius said, “I will continue to fight strongly against racism.

It is sad that we even talk about racism today, but we must continue to fight to alleviate people’s suffering.”

Vinicius Junior was also recognized for investing in educational infrastructure,

including building schools in low-income areas of Brazil.

“I’m happy that I can help so many Brazilian children.

I didn’t receive many opportunities where I was born, so I like the fact that I can give them as many opportunities as possible, Vinicius said.”

In addition, Vinicius also delivered a tribute to Pele, the Brazilian ‘soccer emperor’ who passed away at the age of 82 at the end of last year.

Vinicius said, “Pele is a god to me.

It’s all thanks to Pele that I’m here.

He raised Brazil to a different level than before and left a great legacy and was respected by the people.”

Vinicius, who plays for Real Madrid, a prestigious European soccer team,

became a victim of everyday racial discrimination in the Spanish professional soccer league, Primera Liga (La Liga).

On May 22, during the away game against Valencia in the 35th round of the 2022-2023 La Liga,

he was called a ‘monkey’ by the home crowd.
