Vinícius Júnior has barely played 20 minutes in the last five Real Madrid games. The Brazilian has lost the confidence of Zinedine Zidane in the starting eleven and has only added two goals in this league. At 20 years of age, he was called to be one of the targets for attack by whites but his current role is far from those claims.
The distance between Zidane and Vinicius for a few months is clear. But why has the Brazilian lost the confidence of the French? We have to go back to August 7 to find one of the reasons for its breakdown.
The feeling between the two cooled down in the Champions League second leg against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. As published by the newspaper AS, Vinicius kept hopes throughout the week of being a starter at the Etihad.
His training pace was good and Eden Hazard is not quite comfortable with the lack of rhythm due to his injuries. As is customary at Real Madrid, Zidane gave the names of the eleven chosen to be starters a couple of hours before the game.
And Vinicius was not among the chosen. The substitution made the Brazilian who responded to Zidane’s appointments very bad picking up his mobile phone while the coach spoke. That gesture did not go unnoticed by the Frenchman who sentenced him.
There were no words or reproaches. Zidane only wants footballers one hundred percent committed to the role that they play in each game. Vinicius will have to work hard to regain the ‘feeling’ he had with Zizou in his first stage.
