Vinicius Junior

Real Madrid starlet Vinicius Junior claims he is getting better at playing on the right side of the pitch, despite struggling at first.

The right-footed Brazilian prefers playing on the left wing and has also shown that he can do well in the centre. However, he has never previously been employed on the right wing.

The arrival of Eden Hazard has necessitated him to adapt to a new position and Vinicius claims he is now getting better at it after a tough start.

“At every club, the right-footed players like to play on the left, like Hazard does,” Vinicius told the Brazilian press while on international duty, according to Marca.

“It’s the same here. Each player has their own characteristics and it’s the coach that decides. It’s always really difficult to begin with, but I’m adapting well in my new position.

“I’m training and asking [Zinedine] Zidane [about it], who is putting me there.

“Left or right, having the chance to play on both wings helps me at Real Madrid and in the [Brazilian] national team.”
