Real Madrid prospect Vinicius Junior admitted that the players get a little nervous around boss Zinedine Zidane at times.
The Brazilian also spoke in admiration of the Frenchman and about how he takes care of everything and ensures that the players need to focus only on their football.
“When a guy like that – who played at such a high level – is on the bench and says anything, you pay attention, don’t you?” Vinicius said to Esporte Espetacular, according to Marca.
“Sometimes we get a little nervous when we are going to speak to him.
“He does everything for you, so you only worry about playing football.”
Vinicius is confident that he will enjoy regular playing time under Zidane. The team is now preparing for next season and the manager is willing to provide everyone a chance to prove themselves.
“I know that Zidane gives chances to everyone,” Vinicius added.
“We are now preparing for next season.
“I am calm because I know that when I have recovered [from my injury], my chance [to impress] will appear.”
