Vinicius says it was his decision to play for Real Madrid Castilla

The Brazilian admits that even when he was with the first team squad for the pre-season, playing for the reserves is better to help him adapt to the game and Madrid.

Vinicius travelled with Real Madrid's first team squad for the summer tour of the United States but has made just two appearance with the senior side so far this season - in the league games against Atlético and Alavés. However, he reveals that playing with the reserves was his plan all along.

“I completed the pre-season with the first team squad knowing that there was a strong chance that I would end up playing for the reserves. I asked to play for Castilla; if I wasn’t going to be considered for the first team on a regular basis. Playing for the B team is better than staying at home because it’s helping me to adapt [to the European game], and to adapt to the climate here and everything that a player needs”.
