In Rio de Janeiro, Vinicius Junior tried out American football with Justin Jefferson, a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings and NFL star.
The Real Madrid and Brazil star was spotted playing American football with Vikings player Jefferson while on vacation in his home city of Rio de Janeiro.Vinicius traveled to Florida last month with Neymar and Paul Pogba to watch the Miami Heat play the Denver Nuggets in the NBA Finals. Jimmy Butler, the “good friend” and Heat star, was being cheered on by the two Brazilians.
FUTURE PLANS FOR VINCIUS? Before Real Madrid travels to the USA for preseason games against AC Milan, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Juventus, the winger is anticipated to return to training this month.
The 2022/23 LaLiga season’s finest player, Vini Jr., was honored at the Real Casino in Madrid as part of the second annual Spanish Footballers’ Association (AFE) awards. The Madrid forward won the title after appearing in 33 games and contributing to 10 goals and eight assists for the team last season.
The Brazilian athlete’s acceptance speech said, “I would like to thank the AFE and all my colleagues who voted me the best player in Spain last season.” This is fantastic news, and I certainly intend to keep things rolling for the foreseeable future.
