Vinicius Junior is not going through his best moment, but the idea of leaving Real Madrid for next season has not crossed his mind and at no time has he ever thought of such a thing.
The club supports him, he has found a positive response from soccer, social media and his brand supporter, Nike, is going to take him to be the image of an anti-racism campaign.
The Brazilian, as he told Florentino Perez, is clear that he is in the best possible team and in the right place to fulfill all his sporting dreams, but it is also true that he believes that the situation must change and the tension and verbal abuse that, as the season has progressed, has become unsustainable, must be reduced.
If the critical moment of Sunday’s fixture continues, it could lead to a drastic solution, but he feels supported by Carlo Ancelotti and his teammates, who in Valencia turned to the Brazilian.
What happened at Mestalla last Sunday is the reflection and the final explosion of what has happened in other matches, but elevated to the maximum power.
The insults started the moment he entered the stadium and carried over into the match, until the moment when the Brazilian felt overpowered, pointing to the spectator who imitated the gestures of a monkey.
Vinicius is not willing to have to live with situations that go against the basic principles of coexistence and will not cease in denouncing everything related to any racist gesture or insult, nor his ‘war’ with any of the institutions of Spanish soccer.
He only seeks to play soccer within a framework of calmness and to do so with the shirt of Real Madrid, the team with which he renewed his contract last summer until 2027.
If he does something wrong, he asks to be punished, but also to be treated like the rest, something he considers that does not happen in Spain.
Remaining at Real Madrid
He has not thought at any time about leaving, nor has his agent made him see that it would be best to think about another team, as MARCA has been able to learn.
It is also true that the tension grows in each game and the situation has become impossible, but with the end of the season comes time for reflection and the striker believes and hopes that the situation will change, hand in hand with the protection of the club, but especially the referees, who must judge what happens on the pitch and not allow that from the VAR can ‘modify’ the reality of what happens.
Vinicius‘ personality, with his successes and mistakes, will not change, although it is also true that in his head is the idea of not generating tension, but he seeks to be judged in the same way in LaLiga as he is in Europe.
He feels that the world of soccer is on his side and that his demand for respect has gone down well in the world of soccer.
The Nike brand is going to use his image in a campaign against racism that will be launched in the coming days in Spain, with special emphasis on Madrid and Valencia.
The American firm continues to be his technical sponsor, although it was close to breaking off the deal some months ago.
