Benzema does not have the right to replace coach Zinedine Zidane to instruct players how to play. However, when watching Vinicius continuously perform disappointing football in the context of Real at a disadvantage. The French striker was forced to speak.
Those statistics do not please the fans. Vinicius played too poorly and did not make any mark on Real Madrid’s attacking front. Watching Vinicius continuously handle the failure, Benzema could no longer keep his composure. Real’s No 9 asked Ferland Mendy not to pass the ball to Vinicius Jr in a 2-2 draw with Monchengladbach in the Champions League.
He hopes his colleague will pass the ball to him more, instead of regularly coordinating with Vinicius, who plays with Mendy. After the break, Sports Mail statistics Vinicius also received 3 passes from Mendy.
Before that, in the super classic match, Mendy had 18 passes for Vinicius. Meeting Monchengladbach, the French defender continued to make 13 passes towards his young teammate.
Vinicius is also backed by Benzema. Clash with Barca, the 32-year-old striker has 13 passes for the younger brother. To the match against Monchengladbach, Benzema only sent the ball to the position of the Brazilian goalscorer 5 times.
These numbers point to a major rift between Benzema and Vinicius. The former Lyon star seems to lose the trust of the young Real star.
From the match against Barca to Monchengladbach, Vinicius was disappointed. He missed many opportunities and wasted the effort that his teammates created.
Midfielder Federico Valverde bold breakthrough on the right wing and passed Vinicius inside the penalty area. The 20-year-old Brazilian striker finished the artist, but it was a bad handling phase.
The ball flew over the bar, and at the same time kicked Real’s chance to score. That treatment is not conclusive enough for anything. If he did not pass the wrong address, this player made a very unreasonable decision.
After the incident above, Real began to reveal a major weakness. They have plenty of staff to serve public goods, but lack quality. With Vinicius, he is placed in a professional environment and surrounded by big names. The Brazilian striker can absolutely learn many things from his teammates.
Real needs quality cards who can open the door to lead the home team to victory. That’s what the French striker wanted to convey to Vinicius.
