Vinicius Jr. gets yelled at by his own teammates inside Real Madrid locker room

Striker Joselu of Real Madrid stated in an interview with El Desmarque that teammate Vinicius Jr. has been instructed to control his emotions.

Joselu, who came to Los Blancos on loan from Espanyol, has performed admirably so far this season when head coach Carlo Ancelotti has needed him to cover for Vinicius and Rodrygo.

While international football has temporarily taken over the calendar, Joselu has had the opportunity to get to know Vinicius well and has talked about the Brazilian with nine La Liga matchdays left as Madrid leads the pack by eight points.

“Vini is a peculiar guy. In the locker room he is a very humble boy, always smiling. He’s a guy who from day one has treated me very well since I arrived here. He’s a guy who does a lot in the locker room,” Joselu explained.

“It’s clear that on the pitch he’s a player who transforms a little, but I think it’s because of that margin that he has to decide games. He’s such a decisive player, such a good player, one of the best players in the world, and I think the opponents and the opposition fans are bothered by that,” Joselu went on.

Joselu also offered a little criticism in response to a SPORT story stating that Madrid is concerned about the mentality of the number seven.

“It’s clear that there are gestures that he can improve, but he’s very young and we’re all supporting him for that. There will be times when he has to decide how to carry out and deal with those gestures and those things, but he’s a spectacular guy.

“We all have a lot of affection for him in the dressing room and little by little he is going to bring out his positive side in all that,” Joselu predicted.

Vini received his fourth yellow card on Saturday, which will prevent him from playing for Real Madrid for a month, but the team still won 4-2. Ancelotti stated that his player needs to improve self-control.

Joselu verified that Vinicius’s Madrid teammates have also occasionally advised him to alter his behaviour, telling him to “don’t leave us with ten” men after the 23-year-old has previously received a warning but still gets involved in controversy.

“I think he’s such a decisive player in every game that he knows it. He knows he can decide a game on his own and I think he’s very fundamental for us,” Joselu concluded.

During the international break, Vinicius will represent Brazil against his chosen country of Spain at the Bernabeu.
