Vinicius: “My game isn’t about goals, but Sterling also had problems at Man City”

12 Dec 2019

Vinicius Junior plans to follow in the footsteps of Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling and add more goals to his game.

The Brazilian doesn’t believe that his game is centered around scoring, but he acknowledged that the Englishman also had his own troubles in front of goal.

“I don’t play to score,” Vinicius said, “I play to help the team.

Sterling at City also had trouble of scoring goals.

“I left Brazil very early and I’m working hard to do great things.”

Vinicius‘ countryman Rodrygo Goes scored, as Vinicius himself did, in Madrid‘s 3-1 win at Club Brugge on Wednesday night.

“We’re friends,” the forward said.

“I’m happy because he is doing things very well.”

Madrid will face Barcelona in El Clasico next week, with their security not guaranteed, but Vinicius insists they’re only thinking about the next game: a trip to Mestalla to face Valencia.

“We’re not thinking about that [the security problems],” Vinicius added.

“We have our minds set on Valencia.

“We’re all calm in the dressing room.”
