“Don’t play with Vinicius, he plays against us”: Half-time chat between Mendy and Benzema caught on cameras

28 Oct 2020

Vinicius Junior struggled to get a single shot on target in the first half of Real Madrid’s 2-2 draw against Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League.

His performance was poor but Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy seemed to have had enough of the 20-year-old’s sloppiness upfront.

It is unclear if this was said by Benzema or Mendy but as the players came out for the second half, cameras picked up the following: “Don’t play with Vinicius, he’s playing against us.”

To make matters worse, the young Brazilian was standing right in front of them. The three players then appeared to speak amongst each other before joining play.
