Former Pumas coach and Real Madrid legend, on Vinícius: “They thought he was the new Neymar or Mbappé”

The young man from Real Madrid little by little convinces the press, the fans and the former stars of the white team

Multi-champion with Real Madrid and one of the most prestigious Spanish athletes of the 90s, Míchel, former coach of the Pumas of Liga MX, gave an interview to the program ‘El Larguero’ by Cadena SER and pointed out the great expectation that the Merengue club has about Vinícius Jr.

For the Asturian, the great pressure that exists on the young Brazilian is due to the expectations created with his hiring, since the Merengue team leaders believed that Vinícius he had the potential to be one of the best in the world for years to come.

“They found him a place and he was gaining confidence to play every week. He seems to me to be a good player. To reach consistency you need more time. It is better to let him work and this potential must also correct his deficiencies. Soccer only allows extremes. . Either you are bad or you are good. Yesterday I saw that he was better than Raúl and Raúl reaped an important career, “said Míchel.

“What makes Vinícius extraordinary is his price. The pressure is the price. I don’t know if any other player had those possibilities. People pay less attention to the passport and more to the price. When he arrived, they thought he was the new Mbappé, Neymar, Raúl … Until now he is more of a starter, but until yesterday’s game he had difficulties to be one, “he added.

The Spanish press alternates between praising and criticizing the Brazilian. But this week, the Brazilian had a great performance in the 3-1 win over Liverpool in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League.
