Respected Spanish journalist, Josep Pedrerol, has hit out at Real Madrid star, Vinicius, for showboating during his team’s LaLiga 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid last weekend.
Vinicius was recently the subject of a racist attack by football agent, Pedro Bravo, who made condemnable remarks on the Brazilian for celebrating his goal during Real Madrid’s LaLiga 4-1 victory against Mallorca a few days ago.
His Real Madrid and Brazil teammates rallied behind him leading up to the Atletico Madrid encounter.
Vinicius also responded to the incident by celebrating Rodrygo’s goal against Atletico Madrid with his trademark dance.
But after the game, Pedrerol criticized Vinicius on El Chiringuito TV, claiming he could become the ‘second Neymar’ if he did not correct his habit of showboating.
“I have always defended Vinicius, but I didn’t like him today.
“He has to correct these things, or he will be the second Neymar,” Pedrerol said.
