Brazilian youngster, Vinicius Junior has been picked by his countryman as the most promising player across all European Leagues.
Vinicius has within the shortest period marked that he can do a lot of good things in the Real Madrid squad ever since completing his €46m transfer from Flamengo.
Being one of the favorites marked to fill the space left by Juventus player, Cristano Ronaldo; Vinicius is trusted by Dani Alves as being equal to the task as he would only get better and better.
While speaking to Business Insider, Dani Alves shared that the Brazilian kid is one of the few players born with talent, just like Lionel Messi.
“I would have to say Vinicius Junior from Real Madrid,” Alves said.
“There are some players that are born with the talent and for sure he is one of them.
“I had the chance to watch him play closely, with the Brazil national team – I’m positive we will see and hear a lot more about him soon.”
Vinicius has so far made just one senior appearance for his national side following a sudden injury that disqualified him from featuring in the Brazilian squad for the 2019 Copa America.
Alves also admitted that despite the 19-year-old has the abilities and features to fill the gap at Santiago Bernabeu, its won’t be an easy task for him and the team as a whole.
He went on to make reference of his former team, Barcelona. “I believe that in football we will always discover new talents,” Alves continued.
“In Barcelona, before Messi, you had Ronaldinho, before Ronaldinho you had other great players.
“You’re always going to have someone who will be better, but I still believe that it will be very hard to measure up to a player like Messi.
