5 similarities between Vinicius and Cristiano Ronaldo

01 Dec 2021

Vinicius had shown to have top player qualities during previous seasons, but he lacked self-confidence and improvement in front of goal to be a candidate to be in the elite. This season, under the orders of Carlo Ancelotti, Vinicius has exploded and has shown that he is already prepared to pull the Real Madrid bandwagon when necessary.

He has made a major change and has presented himself this season as a very complete and decisive player, as he has recently shown against Sevilla. The Brazilian did not hide with 1-1 on the scoreboard against a tough rival such as Sevilla and scored a stunning goal which brought the most important three points to his team.

For a moment, Real Madrid fans remembered those years in which Cristiano Ronaldo, who currently plays for Manchester UnitedΒ , threw the team on his back in the most complicated moments and solved the matches with individual moves of great level.

After the match against the Sevilla, there are many who see Vinicius Jr. as the new Cristiano Ronaldo. Every day he is better, with more confidence and with more desire to be the protagonist.

He has worked a lot and has had to endure a lot of criticism during these years.Β Now, he is enjoying his great moment of form and wants to prolong it for a long time.

We are going to discuss the five similarities between Vinicius and Cristiano Ronaldo, who is considered one of the best players in the history of football and Real Madrid.

DRIBBLE: Both footballers have an amazing ability to dribble past opposing footballers and break opposing team lines. They can turn any defense upside down on a tile and unblock those closed matches.

DETERMINING PLAYER: Vinicius has become a decisive player like Cristiano Ronaldo when he was a member of Real Madrid.Β The Brazilian claims the leading role and has already given victories to his team.

AMBITION and HARD WORK: Vinicius is an ambitious footballer who wants to win everything with Real Madrid and, therefore, works hard every day.Β He wants to always be in top physical condition so that he can help his team achieve victory. Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Vinicius works a lot on his physique and prepares very well for each game.Β He dreams of being the best in the world, something that Manchester United’s Portuguese striker has already achieved.

CONFIDENCE: An important point in the life and professional career of Vinicius has been the confidence that he has gained during this summer.Β The Brazilian has improved his success rates thanks to mental work.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a footballer who has a lot of confidence in himself and does not hesitate to ask for the ball when it is necessary to gamble with a dribble or with a shot to help his team.

Vinicius already has that confidence and his pulse does not tremble when it comes to unblocking games like the one last Sunday against Sevilla.Β With confidence, the Brazilian has proven to be unstoppable.

GOAL: What Vinicius lacked in recent seasons was to improve his ability to score goals. It was his great weak point but Carlo Ancelotti has managed to get his best version. Now, his weak point has become one of the strong points of the Brazilian. In 19 official meetings between LaLiga and the Champions League, Vinicius has scored 11 goals and has no intention of stopping.

Real Madrid and the whole world of football demanded goals from him to consider him one of the most promising footballers on the planet and this season he is responding in the best possible way.

He is still a very young footballer with a long professional career ahead of him, but at 21 he is already standing up to Karim Benzema for being the top scorer in LaLiga Santander.Β The French player has eleven goals in the national championship while the Brazilian already has nine.

He wants to pick up the baton from Cristiano Ronaldo, who was the club’s top scorer season after season since he arrived in 2009 from Manchester United.
