Athletico Bilbao and Black Stars striker Inaki Williams has once again voiced his support to Real Madrid winger Vinicius Juniour while describing Spain as an “elitist” society.
Speaking in a recent appearance on ESPN’s Bicycle Diaries, the Black Stars attacker spoke out against racism in football specifically in the Spanish La Liga.
Inakj Williams was racially abused in a football match between his current club, Athletic Bilbao and Espanyol in 2020.
In line with this unpleasant experience, Inaki reacted with a statement that read, “It’s sad that to this day we are still seeing racism in football.”
“In Spain, I think that people are elitist. If you have a lot of money like I do, they don’t look at you skin colour but if you are a street vendor, they do” he added.
The Ghanaian international touched on the Vinicius Juniour racism row stating, “I would have appreciated it if all the Real Madrid players walked off and the game had been stopped”.
The 29 year old Ghanaian striker has four goals and two assists in nine games in all competitions this season for Athletico Bilbao.
Also, Inaki Williams is in line to play for Ghana’s Black Stars in their upcoming international friendly games against Mexico and USA scheduled for October 15 and 18 respectively.
