DANI ALVES ADMITS TO BEING 
THE OBJECT OF RACIST INSULTS IN SPAIN

08/02/2011

Daniel Alves, footballer of FC Barcelona and the Brazilian NT, has stated that “unfortunately” he has already “learned to live with” racism in Spain, and that the situation is “beyond control” in Spanish stadiums.

 

“I’ve been living with racism every single game, but I don’t get offended anymore. The fans yell at me and call me monkey” said the attacking right back in an interview that was published in the Sao Paulo internet newspaper “Folha”.

Alves laments that racism in Spanish football is something “beyond control” and that he thinks “it will never be fully eradicated”, despite efforts on part of the clubs and the Spanish Liga.

“I suffered many episodes of racism in Spain. Unfortunately, I learned to live with it. At first it angered me a lot, but I’ve learned not to give it too much importance”, said the Brazilian, who at the moment is in Paris with his national team, preparing the upcoming friendly against France.

Alves also stated that his family feels “saddened” when they hear racist booing directed towards him, but also that he is not going to make an official complaint about it because he’s trying to “put some distance between himself and those incidents”. He also adds that those fans are completely uneducated. During an away game in the Espanyol stadium, in April 2010, he suffered harsh racist insults, even though the referee didn’t make any note about it.

The 27-year-old blaugrana footballer said that his next objective is winning the 2014 World Cup – which will take place in Brazil. “I am going to work hard in the best way possible in the next four years so that I’ll be fit for the WC. We did an amazing job this last WC, but what we didn’t win the title”.

it suddenly strikes me why exactly he's pressuring the club to give him the same salary of other spanish internationals on the team
:/ just a thought, but it would mean he gets equal status with them; which in a way makes perfect sense.

But it's not like he doesn't earn like some of his teammates, right? It's not like he's the only one who gets this particular sum?
Anyway, it's horrible but not entirely surprising... which is the bad part, I guess.

No one deserves this. Racism is not a joke and people pretend that it doesn't happen, but it still does everywhere. It is extremely saddening.

Alves: "My words about racism in Spain have been exaggerated. It's there, but it's a minority you can't control."

Still sucks though. Doesn't surprise me that Espanyol fans were involved in it. I wonder how the likes of Kameni feel when they hear it.

That's so admirable on his part. Idk if I could handle it that way but major kudos to Dani.
