Vinicius has also stressed that the people who are close to him have helped him to focus on football by soaking up the pressure of the high expectations created after his arrival.
“It is always a very big responsibility to play for Real Madrid, the greatest team in the world,” Vinicius added.
“But all the people at the club and my family, everyone around me, give me the greatest possible peace of mind so that I can worry [only] about playing.
