Spanish reports revealed that Brazilian Vinicius is surprised by his French colleague Karim Benzema during the meeting between Real Madrid and Borussia Moenchengladbach (2-2) in the second round of the Champions League.
Several Spanish media outlets, including the famous “Chernigito” program, published a video that Real Madrid fans described as a “scandal video”, in which Benzema appeared in French addressing his colleague and compatriot Ferland Mendy between the two halves of the match, asking him not to pass the ball to their colleague Vinicius Junior.
Benzema told Mindy, “He’s just messing around, don’t play with him about my mom’s life, he’s playing against us.”
The Spanish newspaper “AS” confirmed that this situation caused great astonishment to Vinicius Junior and his surroundings, especially in light of the strong relationship between him and the French striker since his arrival to Real Madrid.
The newspaper pointed out that Vinicius considers Benzema as his idol, and he enjoys a very good relationship with him on a personal level, so that he feels protected in the presence of the French striker during his development stage, and Vinicius does not miss an opportunity to praise his French colleague, and to emphasize his help in the process of adaptation and development.
Despite the distress caused by Benzema’s attack on Vinicius, those in the vicinity of the players confirm that the incident will remain only a passing tale.
