“I’ve been a Flamengo fan since I was little. I recently went to Maracanã and when the fans saw I was there, they started screaming my name. That was very important to me, because, deep down, my heart is with the club (Flamengo), and it was Flamengo that encouraged me to come here to Real Madrid“, revealed the striker of the Brazilian team.
In another moment, the attacker who will always have a reserved space in the heart of the Nation, who coldly awaits his return to Maracanã, revealed how it felt to score the goal that gave Real Madrid the title of yet another Champions League.
“It was a unique feeling. To describe it, you don’t have much to say, you don’t have to write much, you don’t have much to say. Only the people who lived it, who lived football as we did that seasonyou know how important it is and how happy it makes you“, said Vini Jr.
