Vinicius Junior tells Valencia fans they're getting relegated after picking up red card
| Last updated
Vinicius Junior ruthlessly told Valencia fans they are going down to the second division as he left the field following the first straight red card of his career.
Real Madrid lost 1-0 at Valencia on Sunday as Diego Lopez scored the only goal of the game in the 33rd minute.
The visitors were reduced to 10 men when Vinicius Jr was shown a straight red card following a clash with Hugo Duro in stoppage time.
He slapped Duro in reaction to being manhandled by the Valencia player in a flashpoint in the game.
The Brazilian forward received his marching orders for striking Duro, but he wasn't done there.
As he left the pitch, he signaled to the home fans inside the Mestalla Stadium that they're being relegated to the second division.

It comes after the 22-year-old was subjected to alleged racist abuse from the home supporters.
Valencia currently occupy 15th place in La Liga, just five points clear of the relegation zone.
Unfortunately, it's not the first time Vinicius Jr has been targetted by rival fans as he was subjected to a sick taunt by Atletico Madrid ultras ahead of their meeting back in January.
Real's defeat, meanwhile, comes after they were destroyed by Manchester City in the Champions League.
They'll go the season without winning either the league title or Champions League.
But on an individual note, Vinicius Junior has enjoyed another prolific campaign following a superb term last season.
He scored 22 goals in all competitions last season and has 23 goals in all competitions to his name this campaign.
