Endrick has finally expressed his displeasure at his lack of game time at Palmeiras under manager Abel Ferreira following their qualification to the semi-finals of the Copa Libertadores.

The great Brazilian talent will be transferred to Real Madrid in 2024, when he turns 18, after the royal club bought him for around 70 million euros.

However, Endrick, who is not playing for the Brazilian club and has become a major problem for Real Madrid after all that investment, has broken his silence by speaking for the first time about his lack of play.

“I thank God that I am doing my part. I’m not anxious, I’m not mad that I’m not playing. I had a conversation with Abel. It calmed me down. I have no anxiety whether he plays or not. He says that it is important to work”, Endrick said first.

“It’s in God’s hand, I don’t have time to complain about life, I’m just grateful for my time on earth. I’m doing what I love, which is to play football. I’m training, I’m looking for my space. I’m a little sad that I’m not playing, but I have to control it a bit.”

“I just thank God because he is the one who is with me every day, every night. If I could, I would ask the press not to talk, but this is what we players live for. Life outside crosses us”.

“I will continue to train and play. You can be angry with me, but I will speak for God, I will transmit his word to the whole world”, concluded the Brazilian teenager.

Endrick had his red card overturned in the quarter-final first leg, allowing him to play in the second leg. But he played just 28 minutes as Palmeiras drew 0-0 against Pereira to advance to the semi-finals.

The Real Madrid-owned forward has featured in just five of Palmeiras’ last 29 games in all competitions.
