Real Madrid’s new signing Endrick has revealed that the likes of Vinicius Jr and Cristiano Ronaldo are the reason why he chose the team from the capital city above all. 

Speaking in an interview with Spanish publication MARCA after attending a charity match at the iconic Maracana Stadium – where Everton Ribeiro and David Luiz were also the participants – the 16-year-old spoke about his move to Real Madrid.

The teenage striker, who will officially join his new team in the summer of 2024, said that while he is at Palmeiras at the moment, he will be supporting Madrid for the rest of his tenure in Brazil.

“I am very happy, I thank God very much but I have my feet on the ground,” said the youngster. 

“I haven’t won anything yet. I thank God very much for the present, the future only belongs to God. In 2024 when I go to Real Madrid I hope to have good seasons. At the moment I am at Palmeiras, but I will be supporting them from afar. 

“May Vini, who is my friend, have a great season, Eder, Rodrygo, and may Real Madrid win more Champions Leagues, La Liga titles, and the Super Cup now,” he added.

It must be noted that apart from Real Madrid, the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea were well within reach of the youngster. Hence, the race came particularly came down to personal preference and Endrick explained why he chose Real Madrid.

“Real Madrid is a very big team, and Vini had sent me messages and gave me more hope. Cristiano too, who is my idol, played for Real Madrid. 

“That’s why I chose Real Madrid and I think it’s the right choice. God has always been with me and he has told me that it is the best path,” he explained.

Endrick also revealed that he had a long conversation with Vinicius Jr about Real Madrid and the latter gave him a lot of tips about the team. “Several tips,” he said. 

“I couldn’t even talk here because there have been a lot of tips, I would be here telling it for a long time, but I keep them to myself. But he has not given me advice just for now but for my whole life. 

“He is my friend and I think this friendship will last for many years. I hope I can exchange a lot of passes with him and score goals.”

Lastly, the 16-year-old admitted that he also spoke with his new manager Carlo Ancelotti and the Brazilian contingent of the team. 

“Yes, I spoke with Ancelotti, Rodrygo, Eder, with the Brazilians. I thank God very much for everything that happens in my life and I hope that many good things will still come, but you have to keep your feet on the ground, have humility and persevere,” he concluded.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
