The Madrid star was sent off after clashing with Hugo Dora in second-half stoppage time. A few minutes prior to the incident, he reacted angrily after being racially abused by Valencia supporters behind the goal. La Liga have been heavily criticised for their handling of the incident over the past few days, but the RFEF (Royal Spanish Football Federation) has now taken action.
This means that Vinicius should be available for Madrid’s La Liga clash against Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday night. However, manager Carlo Ancelotti may opt to remove him from the firing line for the dead rubber.
Ancelotti has insisted that Vinicius will not be leaving Madrid, despite the various incidents of racist abuse he has endured in Spain. Madrid have nothing left to play following their Champions League elimination to Manchester City, with Barcelona already securing the league title.
