“Do you think you are Pele?” Vinicius Jr was insulted by a Cadiz player on the pitch, during the game.
Real Madrid defeated Cadiz by a score of 2-1 on Thursday night to get back on the winning track.
The outcome did not allow them to pass FC Barcelona for first place, but it did enable them to keep pace with the Catalan powerhouses, who had made a strong domestic start under Xavi.
Despite Real Madrid’s victory over Cadiz in the middle of the week, it was anything but a happy occasion for Vinicius Junior because, according to El Chiringuito, he was’seriously insulted’ by the Cadiz players during the game, which led to a’monumental row’ during the halftime break.
Three Cadiz defenders specifically addressed Vinicius at halftime, saying, “Who do you even think you even are? Arancha Rodriguez asks, “Pelé?
The incident was the culmination of a busy night for Vinicius, who was frequently mistreated by the defenders and was heavily marked by the opposition. The Brazilian international received six fouls by the time the game reached the 60th minute, all from Cadiz’s Ivan Alejo.
Vinicius, however, deserves praise for his tenacity and ability to stand out from the competition by making things challenging for them.
Although the forward did not contribute to either of the two goals, Real Madrid was able to probe the opponent’s defense thanks to the forward’s explosive speed and dribbling skills.
He also made two crucial passes and won three dribbles, eventually emerging as a crucial part of the attack for Real Madrid.
Vinicius, who has already contributed to 15 goals across all competitions, will be hoping to carry over his hot form as he represents Brazil at the FIFA World Cup.
