Physical work, mental strength and a liberation: Vinicius metamorphosis

Driven by the penalties of a Real Madrid in depression after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Vinicius Junior landed in the capital of Spain and found himself in front, by his own virtues, with reality, glory and pressure from the Madrid group. With 18 years recently and before the apathy of some footballers of the white attack, the Brazilian burst strongly in his first season, revolutionized the lead and became indispensable at the eleven holder of Santiago Solari. Both, that his injury against Ajax in those champions of 2019 was the beginning of the end of that Madrid.

However, that excellent letter of presentation exaggerated praise and criticism and turned the Brazilian in Diana for everything. Or star or starry, there was no half point. And in the DNI, 19 years old. The positive characteristics of the game of it, speed, overflow and rise, mixed with others that at times despaired apart from the Madrid environment. Vinicius did not hit the goal, and replace the most important scorer in the history of the club did not help. The scoring hardships of the staff, where only Benzema saw door, and the continuous lesions of the theoretical stars of the first team, as Bale and Hazard, did not favor the release of the Brazilian, in constant fight with the rival goal.

He scored a goal in the 18 games he played during the 18-19 league, three in the 29 played in 19-20 and three in the 35 that the past course participated. Numbers stagnating too much for the age and position of it and feelings nothing hopeful. On the clearest occasions, Vinicius erred in decision making, gave some more touch, I thought too much about what was going to happen or just did not define towards the best zone possible.

Despite everything, a light, a party, illuminated its future and exemplified what could become: quarterfinals of the Champions against Liverpool. A pass in Kroos, a diagonal unmarked from Vinicius from the left, a check with chest and a shot. Two touches and a goal. Minutes later, a Modric pass to the penalty point zone and a brazilian top shot for the 3-1 final. A touch, another goal. He had not broken a scorer, but that performance and the 21-year-old years continued to convince the technical body of Madrid that the goal was hidden in the footballer's vinicius.

"Vinicius has to mark more goals," Anncelotti affected during his presentation. Something that also repeats the player himself to the environment of him: "He is the first to know that he has to score more," he assume.

Despite everything, the pressure by the goal has not been able to with the Brazilian. While the atmosphere of Madrid has passed over other players, Vinicius has sailed on the doubts with the firmness of who 'passes' of any overwhelming: "He has a strong mind. He is positive and always smiles, "say those who know him best. "Others pass it wrong, but he does not go crazy," insist on Valdebebas.

During these summer months he has not made specific tap training nor has he focused exclusively on the goal, but has followed his physical work routine to get to the top after having played the Copa America. "He has worked as always, nothing special. He just wants to help Madrid, "detail sources close to soccer players. But when he reached the turf of Valdebebas yes that there has been a lot of exercise towards the goal. Ancelotti, who asked him more in the presentation of him, has insisted that he thinks less and gives less touches, as he confirmed after his goal to the Alavés: "It is very difficult to mark after many touches. You have to mark in one or two ». Before the Levante, the Brazilian repeated a unmarked similar to the day of Liverpool and defined easy on the left side of Aitor and then scoring the second with a good shot.

The other variant of 'Pichichi' Vinicius is the small release of supplement. The ownership of Bale and Hazard, stars consecrated with the pressure of his age and the salary on his shoulders, protects more to the Brazilian, who broke both meetings from the bench. "Ancelotti believes a lot about him," they manifest in the circle of him.
