Wonders in football never ceases to exist. And when it comes to getting red card and suspended, matters start to take a miraculous turn. Real Madrid and Brazilian superstar Vinicius Junior, who was suspended in the game against Valencia, has his red card annulled after the game, according to RFEF.

Vinicius card episode gets annulled

The Brazilian winger was sent off in the stoppage time by referee Ricardo de Burgos Bengoetxea, as he was engaged in a scuffle after striking a Valencia player. Some players have also grabbed him by the neck after the quarrel.

Garnered worldwide support

In the game, Vinicius was once again the victim of racism as some of the supporters from the Mestalla stands hurled him abuses, which leaded to a stoppage in the game, on the 73rd minute. As a result, he had garnered support from all over the world, with appreciation and criticism pouring from across the borders, surpassing local rivalries. Everyone stood in solidarity with the winger, as calls for racism ban reverberated throughout the world.

RFEF releases official statement

As a result of the red card shown to the Brazilian and Real Madrid superstar Vinicius, RFEF has released an official statement about the annulling. It reads, “The RFEF Competition Committee considers that the referee’s assessment was determined by the omission of the entirety of the play that took place, which affected the refereeing decision.”

It continued, “The fact that he (the referee) was deprived of a decisive part of the facts led him to adopt an arbitrary decision. And this is because it was impossible for him to properly assess what happened.”

As an aftermath of the result, Valencia has suffered a worse punishment as half of their South Stand will be closed for five matches, and the club has to incur a fine of 45,000 euros. The club has called this outcome as “disproportionate” and “unfair” , as it would also include the fans who were not involved in the “shameful incident” and would appeal against this ban.
