Vinicius Jr Winked At And High-Fived Jurgen Klopp, Scored Champions League Final Winner Seconds Later

Vinicius Jr winked at and high-fived Jurgen Klopp just seconds before scoring the winner in the Champions League final.

The Brazilian star crept in at the far post in the 59th minute, notching the only goal of the game against Liverpool to secure a 14th European Cup win for Real Madrid.


And new footage has emerged of the build-up to Vinicius goal. The clip, posted on TikTok, follows Vinicius throughout the entire sequence - the camera fixed on him the whole time.

During a pause in play, the former Flamengo youngster was seen winking at Klopp before the two shared a high-five.

But then literally moments later, Real attacked down the right with Federico Valverde.

The question of whether he was shooting or crossing remains but the Uruguayan put the ball on a plate for Vinicius, who slotted past compatriot Alisson Becker and kissed the badge while wheeling away in celebration.

The video has accrued over 500,000 views on Twitter and a whole lot of reaction from fans:

Vinicius was absolutely integral to Real's La Liga and Champions League success this season under Carlo Ancelotti, scoring 22 goals and assisting 24 in all competitions.

The 21-year-old is now set to sign a new five-year contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, worth nearly £50 million.

His current deal is due to expire in 2024 but this next contract will see him earn £170,000-a-week and well and truly confirm his status as a 'Galactico'.

Reflecting on his first Champions League win, Vinicius said: “You can't put it into words.

"It's now time to celebrate it and really enjoy it. We've worked hard all season. It's incredible to have reached this stage after having enjoyed so many tough times. There's nothing better than winning things in this shirt.

"It's a dream come true for me to be here and winning the Champions League. When you're a player, it doesn't get any more exciting than this.

“Real Madrid players are used to winning things. This is my first Champions League triumph and I'm so happy. I want to keep on winning much more and rewrite the history books at this club."
