Although Vinicius has not yet had game time since Zidane's return, the Frenchman will give the Brazilian a leading role next season. Zidane reportedly has full confidence in Vinicius despite other forwards potentially arriving.
Zinedine Zidane has returned to the Real Madrid bench to lift the team ... just as the player that everyone is talking about gets injured. Vinicius Jr suffered the injury during Real's tragic Champions League exit at the hands of Ajax.
After the words from Vinicius in which he says he sees himself winning the Ballon D'or when he is 25 or 26, it is time to look at other footballers who also saw themselves lifting the prestigious trophy: Jesé, Robinho, Balotelli and Ozil.
Vinicius Jr has taken steps to bring an end to the controversy surrounding his comments on Lionel Messi. The Brazilian has made it clear that nobody at Real Madrid, rather than the world, fears facing the Argentine.
