The Brazilian prospect, who is next month due to formalise his move to Los Blancos after he celebrates his 18th birthday, was expected to be coached by the Frenchman.
But news of Zizou’s resignation has come as a blow for the talented forward, who is likely to be part of the Whites’ pre-season tour to the US.
“I was really looking forward to working with Zidane, but unfortunately it can’t be,” the Flamengo attacker told Marca after a 2-0 win over Bahia.
“Hopefully one day I can find him to give me some advice on how to improve as a player.”
Vinicius Junior also revealed he spoke to Brazilian compatriots Marcelo and Casemiro following their third consecutive Champions League success.
He added: “I spoke with Marcelo and Casemiro to congratulate them and wish them luck with the national team at the World Cup.”
