Biris Norte: they bear the name of a black man and declare themselves anti-racist

Vinicius Júnior’s presence at Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán has been ruled out due to knee problems that prevented him from playing against Rayo. The Brazilian has not trained today with the rest of his teammates and will not travel, so his return to the pitch after the racist episode in Valencia could only take place on the last day, against Athletic at the Bernabéu. Despite his absence, one of the centers of attention of the meeting will be the reception of the Biris Norte and the rest of the Sevilla stadium to Real Madrid and the reaction to the whole case.

The sevillismo expressed in the networks his disagreement with the fact that the Competition removed the direct red card from the footballer that he saw against Valencia. Some Nervionenses fans, in fact, came to ask that the season ticket holders leave the stadium empty against Real Madrid. But the proposal does not seem to have had much acceptance.

It remains to be seen, in this case, the reception given to Real Madrid by the ultra group Biris Norte. A faction of the Sevilla fans that officially declares itself “leftist and anti-racist”. Founded in 1975, this group bears his name in honor of the first black player to wear the red and white jerseythe Gambian Alhaji Momodou Njie, Biri-Biri.

Died in 2020, at the age of 72, Biri-Biri arrived at the Nervión club andn 1973 and played there for five seasons, in which he played 109 games and scored 34 goals. In 2000, Biri Biri was awarded the Order of Merit by Gambian President Yahya Jammeh, and was named the West African country’s “best footballer of the last millennium and of all time”.
