The young attacker said that an extra degree of examination of his results is to be anticipated while playing at such a giant club.
When playing for Real Madrid, which he describes as the largest club in the world, Vinicius Junior insists that being criticized is to be expected.
Since arriving from Flamengo in 2018, the Brazil international has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Since the beginning of 2018-19, he has made 53 La Liga appearances-with 25 of those being starts-and has scored only seven goals and set up one more.
That sees the 20-year-old rank below Marco Asensio (nine) and on a par with Lucas Vazquez and Isco (both eight) in an almost equal number of games for goal participation.
Vinicius has his fair share of detractors, but he claims that the views of those who do not matter to him are blocked out.
I still think of those who want the best for me — family, club people, colleagues like Marcelo and Casemiro, the kind of guy who put me on the right track, “he told Desimpedidos on YouTube.”
“It’s all part of being a member of the world’s biggest club. They speak about us when we lose, and it’s something else when we win.”
After Karim Benzema was captured on tape, Vinicius recently made headlines, claiming to tell Ferland Mendy not to move on to the young attacker.
However, Vinicius has revealed that Benzema is one of his closest friends in Madrid, despite suggestions of unrest in the dressing room.
Before officially reaching Madrid, Vinicius made 69 appearances for Flamengo and hopes to return one day to his boyhood side.
“I ‘m sure that I’ll be going back to Flamengo in the very near future to give the club everything it deserves,” he said.
He hopes to engage in the ride to Valencia on Sunday, with Real Madrid aiming for the top spot in La Liga. They are currently second in the standings, one point behind Real Sociedad, who played an extra game.
