Speaking about Vinicius Jr’s impressive recent work at Real Madrid, former Barcelona star Rivaldo said: “There is no doubt that Vinicius is right now the most dangerous player in Real Madrid’s attack.
“It is obvious that with these performances it is justified that he plays regularly and that he can take responsibility for making a difference.
“When Vinicius comes onto the pitch from the bench, he comes out wanting to conquer the world and show that he can be a starter, that he can be the team’s difference maker, as did vs Valladolid. He has earned the right to being a starter at Real Madrid.”
Vinicius put in an amazing performance coming off the bench against Real Valladolid, scoring a brilliant winner and earning Madrid 3 vital points. While Zinedine Zidane has insisted he’ll keep rotating his players amid the packed schedule, it’ll be impossible for him to keep out the Brazilian winger if he keeps on delivering like this on a more consistent basis.
