Endrick: “The more they provoke Vinicius, the better he performs”
Real Madrid’s future player spoke to the Brazilian press after winning the Paulistao with Palmeiras.
During the last few games, Endrick has managed to overcome a goal scoring drought that he had been dragging on since November and improve his own, personal figures. At the weekend, Palmeiras clinched the Paulistão - Endrick scored in both legs as the team beat Água Santa 5-2 on aggregate to lift the title. Afterwards, the teenager told the media: “Three out of three [titles]. Three disputed championships and three professional titles. I think now I’m ready to start for the Under-20 team. Thank God, I’m very happy to score goals in a Paulista Championship final”.
The future Real Madrid striker confessed that he does not miss “a single game” that Ancelotti’s team play. “I am always watching Vini destroy the opponents. Against Villarreal, once again Vinicius made the difference, unfortunately we lost. It’s great to watch Vinicius play. He is always happy, playing with a smile on his face. Even when they provoke him... The more they provoke him, the better he performs. Those who criticize Vini, in my opinion, are fools, because taunting him will only motivate him to to play even more”.
But it’s not just just his compatriot who has caught Endrick’s attention: “Another player I’m paying more attention to is Benzema. I see what he does in the box and throughout the game. It is very good to know that I will play next to those footballers that I play with in FIFA [videogame]. I believe that we, Real Madrid, will be champions of the Champions League and that Vini will be the best in the world,” he ended.
