Vinicius Junior has so far had a mixed career at Real Madrid.
After arriving from Brazil in 2018, he seemed like the real deal. Back then, at just 18 years of age, Vinicius was already well established and with enough flair to warrant a transfer to a club of Real Madrid’s size.
He scored ten goals and assisted four for his former club and then went on to score three and assist 12 in 34 games for Los Blancos. But unfortunately, a serious injury halted his progress and he is yet to fully regain his momentum.

But with the arrival of Eden Hazard, he might have to adapt to playing on the right as opposed to his natural left. In a recent interview with his national team, however, he confirmed that he has difficulties playing in an unknown role but also that he is slowly adapting to it.
Unfortunately, many Real Madrid fans didn’t really take kindly to his words despite the young forward’s willingness to try out a new position on the pitch.
They quickly took to Twitter to slam the 19-year-old after the interview. Some thought that he should be grateful to just be a part of such a big team while the others were harsher and demanded that he be sent back to Castilla or the bench.
