How Vinícius Júnior Received 'Special Treatment' Over His Real Madrid Teammates

How Vinícius Júnior Received 'Special Treatment' Over His Real Madrid Teammates

Real Madrid might have a reputation for poaching world-class talent, but that doesn't mean they're not looking to build for the future.

Vinícius Júnior is one such player who is rated highly at the club. Los Blancos splashed out €46 million to complete the transfer of the 18-year-old Brazilian forward from Flamengo.

It looks like that translates to the former Flamengo star's treatment at the club, who has received special privileges ahead of his fellow teammates.

Vinícius played for Real Madrid Castilla on Sunday against Celta Vigo. He scored for his team in the 1-1 draw before he was sent off.

When Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui didn't select him for the clash against Levante, Vinícius flew out for some time in Vigo. However, he decided to make his return to Madrid by plane.

According to Marca, flying home instead of travelling via the team coach will have any player issued a fine.

Luca Zidane, Francisco Feuillassier, Daniel Gómez, Cristo Pérez and Álex Martín have all received a fine when they decided to return home instead of travelling on the team coach.

The team put in a request to fly to Celta rather than take a six-hour-long ride on the coach. Madrid declined their request, though the players decided to spend their own money to fly home and back.

Real Madrid B boss Santiago Solari was not impressed and came down hard on all five players. Of course, Vinícius somehow eluded any kind of punishment.




Will Vinícius make it at Madrid?

Let us know in the comments.
