Vinicius Junior wants to follow in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema and become Real Madrid’s new penalty taker next season, reports AS.
The Brazilian was seen putting in extra hours in training to improve his skills on several occasions, according to the Spanish outlet.
Vini is determined to take charge of the penalty shootout until the end of the pre-season tour in the United States of America.
Last season, Vinicius scored 23 goals and provided 21 assists in 55 appearances for Los Blancos.
The youngster’s ultimate goals are to score over 30 goals next season, so taking on the role would clearly help him improve his stats.
Therefore, he is the favorite to do this, as it is already known that he is the main player of Real Madrid.
