Objects were also thrown at ther German international but barely hit him, two members from the away team’s staffs came over to escort him away from the ultras.

Not the first victim

Rudiger was actually only the second player from Los Blancos suffered from this. Earlier this season, Vinicius Jr, Rudiger’s teammate, was targeted several times during matches. The Brazilian forward was called a monkey during a match this season, too, by a fan.

The same fan was also accused of aiming abuse at the Villarreal winger Samu Chukwueze during another league match.

Elsewhere, Real Valladolid recently suspended 12 season-ticket holders while investigating alleged verbal abuse of Vini Jr during a game.

In December, following the abuse he received at Valladolid, Vinícius accused La Liga of “doing nothing” to stamp out racist abuse at matches.

The president of the Spanish league, Javier Tebas, responded by labelling his claims as “unfair and untrue”.

Rudiger react

Madrid’s defender has not commented on the incident so far.
