Fan's racist action, Muric's team with official reaction

Vedat Muriqi - Mallorca - racist insult

Mallorca reacted on Sunday regarding a racist act by one of its fans after the goal scored by Aurelien Tchouameni.

Vedat Muriqi's team has condemned the racist act done by a young fan, which was caught on camera.
The action happened while Tchouameni was celebrating the goal he scored for Real Madrid. With his goal, Real Madrid won 1:0 in the trip to Mallorca, on Saturday night.

According to Marca, the fan appears to be a minor as he made some monkey gestures while the Real Madrid players were celebrating. It was another episode of racism in Spanish football. The same fan also threw a water bottle onto the field.

"In yesterday's match, footage was identified where a person makes racist gestures. The club has activated the protocol against violence in football and is cooperating with the police to identify the person in question. Mallorca does not and will not tolerate any racist display and actively participates in all campaigns to eradicate this scourge that goes beyond sports. This is an isolated case that does not tarnish the respect and sporting behavior of our fans", wrote Mallorca in response.
