Barcelona defender Eric Garcia: Why did the media protect Vinicius Jr?

Barcelona defender Eric Garcia is upset with the way his rivalry with Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Jr has been portrayed.

Last season, Garcia was picked up by microphones mocking Vini Jr during the El Clasico, "Ballon d'Or next season?".

However, the defender insists Vini Jr gave as good as he received.

“Yes, I told him," he said.

"It was in the game. What made me most angry was that, in the last game of the Bernabéu, he also came to tell me something, the cameras filmed him and it has not come out.

"I am not going to say what he said, he is a great player and I have no problems with him, but I wonder why that didn't come out and mine did."
