"At times we forget that Vinicius is only 19..."

The Brazilian coach, Tite, spoke in a press conference before the friendly against Colombia in Miami and valued the talent and growth of Vinicius, one of Brazil's biggest stars. What's more, he asked for calm for those who accuse him of being irregular.

Tite made it clear that he trusts in Vinicius and his skills, but is also aware that the Real Madrid striker is only just starting out in top level football, therefore, the demands should not be that big for him. 

"His irregularity is something natural for a boy of his age. I spoke a lot with him during these days and he is an amazing lad that has extraordinary talent. He has six or seven goals and incredible speed," he started explaining.

"When we see him playing in Madrid, we overvalue his ability to mature. Things are happening very quickly in his life... at times we forget that he is only 19-years-old. We have to give him time and take care of him," he added.

Regarding his ideal position, Tite stated that "his natural position is on the left," but he also accepted that he can play in other roles, which will help him improve as a footballer. Of course, recently Vinicius himself acknowledged that he asks Zidane to put him on the right wing.

"He still has to perfect a lot of things, but his natural talent is bigger than everything he needs to improve on. He also has to work hard on an emotional level and look after himself. He has a charisma like no other and everyone loves him. He has earned everyone's love".
