A small group of Valencia fans were recorded spewing racist abuse at Real Madrid’s Brazilian left-back Marcelo on Sunday night at the Mestalla.
Los Blancos maintained their La Liga challenge with a vital 3-2 win at Los Che; a result which leaves Carlo Ancelotti’s men five points behind joint league leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
Away from the action in the match, however, sad footage was recorded during the warm-up before the game as Marcelo was unacceptably abused by Valencia fans.
Pitchside cameras caught Valencia supporters screaming “Marcelo pareces una rata un mono… Marcelo eres un mono!” – “Marcelo is a monkey who looks like a rat. Marcelo is a monkey!”
