This first criminal conviction in the history of Spain is not for me. It’s for all black people

But, as I have always said, I am not a victim of racism. I am a tormentor of racists. This first criminal conviction in the history of Spain is not for me. It’s for all black people.

Let other racists be afraid, ashamed and hide in the shadows. Otherwise, I’ll be here to collect. Thanks to La Liga and Real Madrid for helping with this historic conviction. More to come…”
