Sevilla fan expelled for 'racist behavior' toward Madrid's Vinicius Jr.

Sevilla expelled a supporter for “racist and xenophobic behaviour” during their 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in La Liga on Saturday, the club said in a statement.

Spanish newspaper Marca ran photographs of a man appearing to make monkey gestures in the direction of Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior after he clashed with Sevilla goalkeeper Orjan Nyland.

The Brazilian winger has been the victim of racist abuse on various occasions during his time in Spain.

Vinicius testified before a Spanish court on October 5 by videoconference as part of an investigation into alleged abuse he suffered at Valencia in May.
