- Passport Vinicius acquires Spanish nationality after two years of waiting
inside the field, Vinicius Junior has the responsibility of a star. The real Madrid he depends on him in attack and the fans and rival players treat him for what he is: one of the most dangerous players on the team. And off the pitch, the media focus is focusing more on him every day. At the first press conference of the Champions League 2022-2023in the mythical celtic park glasgow, Vinicius was chosen to speak to the media. An important responsibility to defend the word of the current European champion.
“I’m happy to have won the Champions League, but I’m already looking forward to winning another. The coach tells us that we have to defend our title well”, said the footballer, who last Friday finally received his Spanish passport. “I came here when I was 18, I had started my career and now I am 22 and I have things very clear. People love me very much and I love being in Madrid. My family is very clear about everything, they are happy in Madrid and want to live here for many years. I like that because I want too. Hopefully I can continue for many years.”
After the season of its explosion, surpassing the 20 goals scored in all competitions, Vinicius is clear that he wants to continue “evolving”, and for this there is nothing better than comparing himself with the “legends” with whom he shares a dressing room: “I hope it will be a season of many goals and assists to continue here for a long time , What Modric, Marcelo, Karim (Benzema), Toni (Kroos)… Legends that have been here for so long.”
The Brazilian was questioned by the critics, especially latent in his beginnings in Madrid: “I always listen to the people who love me, to the one who is with me every day. My family, that’s what matters. Those who speak and criticize, let them speak, I don’t care. I do things for all the people who really know the work I do every day to be a great footballer.”
After Vinicius it was the turn of Carlo Ancelotti, convinced that “it is not an easy group”. “Celtic is doing very well, Leipzig too… You have to respect it. In the first phase there are always surprises and we have a very clear example in our group last year. We lost against the Sheriff at the Bernabéu. It will be a balanced group.”
Asked about the rotations and the ability of his team to face the months before the world, the Italian assured that “we are not going to have a problem”. “The players are motivated to come to the World Cup in good condition. The question is how they will return later“.
