Increasingly, racism is becoming a scourge in soccer. Players are the first victims, the latest being Vinicius Jr. In a recent media appearance, Juventus player Paul Pogba gave his opinion on the matter in a poignant message.
“Blacks have already won. We were slaves for how many years? And today we play soccer, we ride buses, we drive cars, we are recognized all over the world. For me, that’s a victory. All these [commentaires racistes] are due to ignorance. My advice: if they try to hurt you [avec des remarques racistes]it’s because they’re weak,” said the Juventus midfielder.
