Vinícius Júnior Names One Real Madrid Star Who Has Helped Him Improve

Vinícius Júnior has started to make a real name for himself at Real Madrid.

The 18-year-old Brazilian forward arrived at the Spanish club last summer and has made five appearances for Real Madrid Castilla and scored on four occasions.

When it comes to the senior team, the Brazil under-20 international has made 12 appearances this season and scored twice.


At such a young age, Vinícius has plenty of time to continue developing his skills at Los Blancos.

Following on from Madrid's first-leg Champions League clash with Ajax on Wednesday, the youngster spoke highly about his relationship with Karim Benzema.

"Since I came to Madrid, Benzema helps me a lot on and off the pitch and I try to do everything the best I can," he told Real Madrid TV.

"Everything is easier with Karim.

"He always helps me make good decisions and try to win the game. I'm glad that I could help him score."

Of course, Vinícius showed his amazing chemistry with the 31-year-old French striker after he provided him with a brilliant assist against Ajax.

After Benzema opened the scoring in the second half, Hakim Ziyech fired home an equaliser for the Dutch side.


However, Marco Asensio would find the back of the net to allow Santiago Solari's men to secure a 2-1 victory at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

It was an eventful and controversial night for the Champions League holders, with Madrid captain Sergio Ramos involved in his own incident with Kasper Dolberg and VAR coming under fierce criticism from fans.


How many times will Vinícius score this season?

Let us know in the comments.
