Vinicius and his achievement unattainable for the rest of the stars

There is a maxim that says that the word convinces, but the example destroys. An idea that Vinicius Jr. It is not tattooed on her skin, but it has been burned into her head for several seasons. And it is that when they tried to sink the career of a young footballer based on memes who took his first steps in the Real Madrid, The ‘7’ realized in time that it was time to demonstrate on the field and say little. He focused his mind on a single task, not as simple as it might seem at first, and The results ended up showing that the strongest does not always triumph, but rather the one who perseveres.

A long process that has now led him to be closer than ever to winning the Ballon d’Or, an award that means much more than recognition of their work. It is the possibility of raising the trophy to the sky to send a strong message to the world of football after suffering the cruelty of a sport that has no memory and that constantly demands immediacy. A syndrome that does not allow the footballer to learn by getting confused because there is an excessive rush in wanting everything to turn out right the first time. Vini learned through blows, almost always unfair, the reality of footballbut that didn’t stop him.

A footballer of great nights

He told himself that he would never learn the pause that a star needs to have in the final meters to decide well. and that gunners are born with a different instinct, one that cannot be learned along the way. However, The ‘7’ showed that no one is born knowing and that work always rewards. Despite having suffered some injuries throughout the season, Vinícius Jr. has maintained an extraordinary performance. Total, He has accumulated 24 goals and 9 assists in all competitionsbut it is the value of the intangible what makes the Brazilian different: the fear that it inflicts on rival defenses.

“Vinicius deserves to win the Ballon d’Or, there is no doubt about that”, Ancelotti said after the Champions League final at Wembley. And the Brazilian has been for some time decisive like no one else in the competition where stars are required to appear…and even more so in important matches: 21 goals and 22 assists in his 56 Champions League appearances. Figures that have made him the most decisive footballer in the world and the only one who appears when the ball burns the most. Their data in the qualifying rounds of the highest European club competition reflects this.

11 goals and 12 assists in the last 16 games of the final phase (from the 2019/20 season to the current one), where it stands out his two goals in the finals against Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund. His favorite victim is Manchester Citya rival that has had to suffer the Brazilian in the last three editions: 2 goals and 2 assists from the Brazilian in the matches against the men of Pep Guardiola. Only once has he left a direct tie without seeing the goal or assisting a teammate: semifinals against Chelsea in the 2020/21 edition. A single ‘failure’ to show that gods also bleed…although not much. The Champions League has become Vinicius Jr.’s playground and right now there is no footballer who can sign his numbers in the games that require the stars to shine.
