Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior has been a huge revelation for Real Madrid this season, bagging 12 goals for the La Liga giants across all competitions. The Brazilian has revealed he is determined to reach the level of two of the most potent young attackers in world football— Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.
The duo have been tipped to rule the football world in the years to come owing to their incredible performances over the last couple of seasons. Vinicius is aware he has a long way to go to match Mbappe and Haaland but is ready to put in the work.
The Real Madrid winger explained:
“To be at the level of Haaland or Mbappe is complicated because they are great players and they’re always scoring a lot of goals and giving assists and playing some of the best football and I want to be there too. “So to get to that level, I still have to work hard but to play with Madrid, it’s always like that,” he added.
Reaching the top of the game is easier said than done. But with patience, confidence and constant improvement, it is possible to grow and become one of the finest footballers on the planet. Vinicius Junior apparently knows this formula, and the Real Madrid attacker is taking it one step after the other as he climbs the ladder to greatness.
He explained his blueprint for success:
“You have to be calm, you must be patient, to do things well and in the right way. “But if I continue like this, and all is well with the team, then of course, I will be among the best,” he added
