Real Madrid news: Roberto Carlos makes huge Vinicius Junior claim | Football | Sport

The youngster has been involved in the Real Madrid first team under Santiago Solari.

He scored after coming off the bench against Real Valladolid and then got an assist in the Champions League against Viktoria Plzen.

Vinicius, 18, joined Real in the summer from Flamengo in a deal worth €46 million, the largest amount ever received for a player for a Brazilian club.

And Carlos, now an ambassador at Real Madrid, thinks he has a big future in the game.

“I always hope that the Brazilian players that come to Europe are among the best,” said Roberto Carlos.

“Vinicius is very young and left Flamengo already with a lot of experience. It was great for him to play against Plzen. He will make history in Real Madrid and in world football.

“He is a modern player, able to dribble, responsible, consistent and complete.”

And his agent thinks he is on the rise.

“If they build up his confidence and have faith in him, there’ll be no stopping Vini,” Federico Pena told AS.

“Any player who wants to do well at a club like Real Madrid needs to be able to handle all of the pressure he’s under right now – and more.

“He’s put in some excellent performances. He’s not afraid of anything and his strong will helps him deal with any situation.

“Everything’s happening very quickly for him.”
