Vinicius Junior: Expect criticism if you play for Real Madrid

The young attacker has said that with such a huge club, an extra level of control over his performances can be expected.

Vinicius Junior insists that criticism is to be expected when playing for Real Madrid, whom he calls the greatest club in the world.

The Brazilian international has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular at the Santiago Bernabeu since arriving from Flamengo in 2018.

He has played 53 La Liga games since the beginning of the 2018/19 season – just 25 of them – and scored just seven goals and one more.

This puts the 20-year-old under Marco Asensio (nine) and Lucas Vazquez and Isco (both eight) in an almost identical number of games on an equal footing.

Vinicius has a fair share of critics but says he shuts down the opinions of those who are not important to him.

“I always think of those who want the best for me – family, people in the club, colleagues like Marcelo and Casemiro who have put me on the right path,” he told the YouTube channel Unhindered .

“It’s all part of being a member of the biggest club in the world. If we lose, they talk about us and if we win, it’s something else. ”

Vinicius recently made headlines after Karim Benzema was caught on camera for telling Ferland Mendy not to pass on to the young attacker.

However, amid turmoil in the dressing room, Vinicius has found out that Benzema is one of his closest friends in Madrid.

“I have a good relationship with Benzema,” he said. “Also Lucas Vazquez. I talk to them a lot outside of the field. There are also [Luka] Modric, with whom I sit at lunchtime. ”

Vinicius made 69 appearances for Flamengo before officially arriving in Madrid and intends to return to his youth one day.

“I am sure that in the very distant future I will return to Flamengo to give the club back everything it deserves,” he said.

He will be hoping to be part of the trip to Valencia on Sunday, with Real Madrid aiming for first place in the league. They are currently in second place overall, one point behind Real Sociedad, who played more.
