Vinicius says Benzema should win La Liga, Champions League and Ballon d’Or.
Vinicius Junior has backed teammate Karim Benzema to win the Ballon d’Or after showing the top Champions League performance.
Benzema was on fine form for Real Madrid in their 4-3 defeat to Man City in the first leg of the pair’s semi-final clash. He scored a wonderful volley in the first half and Panenka penalty in the second.
Speaking after the game Vinicius said that he hopes the Frenchman wins the Ballon d’Or this year.
“There are no words that can describe how Benzema plays. He deserves the Ballon d’Or.
“I hope my brother Benzema ends up winning La Liga, Champions League and Ballon d’Or.”
The Brazilian international also gave an insight into the game and said, “I can’t and I will never be happy with a defeat. We have to improve in every area for the 2nd leg.
“The Bernabeu fans played a huge role in our previous comebacks and the next leg won’t be any different. Against City we have to suffer and remain more calm.”
