Vinicius, fed up: “When the others need it, they don’t get yellow. I do the first… and card”

Vinicius is still in the eye of the hurricane. The Real Madrid forward scored again and already has 20 goals and 11 assists. Last season he accumulated 22 goals and 20 assists, records that he will surpass if he continues the progression he has this season. Which confirms that he has stabilized in excellence, being the most decisive player in Madrid, even above a Benzema that he is not going through his best season. It so happens that his last 6 goals in La Liga have been scored at home. He hasn’t scored out since August 28, 2022.

The most punished and the one who makes the most mistakes

The Brazilian also continues to be the protagonist for being fouled by rivals, for seeing many yellow cards and for his clashes with the referees. Vinicius is the player who has made the most dribbles (72) and received the most fouls (89) in the League. But he has also seen 8 yellow cards, three from Baena and Carmona, the most targeted, and he is the player who has made the most fouls (53). In the victory against Espanyol he saw the card again in a play that generated protests from the footballer, his coach, Carlo Ancelotti, and the stands. In fact, Figueroa Vázquez was booed and whistled by the Bernabéu and heard shouts of Corruption in the Federation!

Vinicius, who once again was the player most punished by the rivals, spoke at the end of the match about the arbitration issue, tired of being reprimanded by the braids and punished by the opponents: “When the others are needed they do not get yellow. When I do the first one, yellow for me. I don’t want them to protect me, I want them to whistle what it is. When they have 15 fouls, they take a card in the 89th minute. That’s why they don’t take it and we don’t waste time”.

Carlo Ancelotti also had a few words to defend his striker, of whom he said: “Many of the cards that Vinicius has seen are due to the protests, but Against Espanyol I found Vincius’s attitude exemplary, because he hasn’t protested, he hasn’t said anything. You should play like this. It is clear that he has seen too many yellow cards for the fouls they do to him”.
