FC Barcelona Board Member Criticizes Real Madrid's Vinicius Jr., Claiming He 'Deserves A Slap'

FC Barcelona's board member criticized Real Madrid's Vinicius Jr for his performance, but later deleted the tweet.

Deputy spokesperson for FC Barcelona's board of directors, Miquel Camps, recently caused a stir on social media when he attacked Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr. However, he quickly deleted his tweet. Vinicius had been facing criticism for his recent performances for both his club and the Brazilian national team. Nevertheless, he bounced back in the Champions League with an outstanding performance against Braga, earning the Man of the Match title.

During the game, Vinicius provided two assists for his compatriots Rodrygo and Jude Bellingham in a 2-1 away victory. However, not everyone was pleased with his actions when he slowed down play to perform at least 10 scissor stepovers and attempted to nutmeg an opponent who was aggressively trying to tackle him.

Camps, clearly affected by Vinicius' display, took to Twitter to express his disapproval. He stated that it was not a matter of racism, but rather that Vinicius deserved criticism for his "clowning and mocking" behavior. Camps also questioned the significance of these unnecessary scissor stepovers in the middle of the field.

Shortly after posting his tweet, Camps decided to delete it. However, outlets like COPE managed to capture screenshots and share the message in their own tweets. This led to criticism of both Camps and FC Barcelona from fans of rival clubs.

It's worth noting that Camps has a history of such controversies and is known for his outspoken nature. This incident comes just three days before the highly anticipated El Clasico match between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid at the Montjuic Stadium. The outcome of this match could have significant implications for the La Liga title race.

In a previous game against Sevilla, Vinicius Jr experienced racial abuse from a young supporter in the stands. This incident might explain Camps' insistence that his outburst was not racially motivated.

The draw against Sevilla allowed FC Barcelona to close the gap on Real Madrid's lead in the league to just one point. A 17-year-old substitute, Marc Guiu, scored the winning goal in a 1-0 victory against Athletic Club at the Montjuic Stadium on Sunday night.

This Saturday, Vinicius Jr and the rest of Carlo Ancelotti's team can expect a hostile reception from FC Barcelona fans, known as Culers. The match promises to be intense as the two Spanish giants battle it out on the field.
