Vinicius proves doubters wrong

07 Apr 2021

Vinicius Junior has faced criticism many times during the last two years. The Brazilian has received all kinds of ridicule and offensive comparisons, in an attempt to mock a player who has never made a bad gesture to anyone. Despite everything, he has focused on the task ahead.

The ex-Flamengo player has everything against him. He had the support of the club and was aware of everything that was said about him. He came to doubt everything and everyone, but instead of sinking, but he decided to fight and fight to get his head first and then his whole body from that hole in which he saw himself after originally being praised by all, only to be publicly mocked.

His performance against Liverpool on Tuesday night was simply fantastic. He has battled with injury and struggled to break into the first team during Zinedine Zidane‘s return – instead having to watch on from the sidelines.

From a star he became expendable at just 19 years of age. He hesitated and had weeks of not knowing where he’d end up, but he convinced the doubters that he was worthy of playing for Los Blancos.

It may seem like a cliche, but there’s no doubt Vinicius put in many hours of dedication in order to seek improvement, regain confidence and prove the doubters wrong. But he also knows that things can change very quickly in football and that another story begins on Saturday with El Clasico.
