Vinicius Jr. has grown tremendously since arriving at Real Madrid, establishing himself as one of the club’s marquee players.

However, owing to his dynamic play style and the increasing workload he has been facing in recent years, injuries have befallen the Brazilian star more often.

And last month he tore the femoral biceps muscle in his left thigh during the international break with Brazil.

Reports came out to state that Vinicius would face a period of two and a half months out on the sidelines, with a return expected in February.

Real Madrid urging Vinicius to not rush the process

Now, according to Jose Felix Diaz, via MARCA, Vinicius is rushing the recovery process and Real Madrid asks him to calm down.

The Brazilian intended to resume playing before the year ended, but the medical staff feels that if he returns earlier than expected, he may experience problems down the line.

As per the report, he has been working out on the grass for the past two weeks, daring to hit the ball, and if it were up to him, he would already be working with his teammates.

Even so, the club believes Vinicius should bide his time, especially with the crucial phase of the season yet to come, starting with the Super Cup in Saudi Arabia.

The Brazilian has played ten league games and three Champions League games thus far this season, but only five of those have been completed.

Having already managed the player’s gradual return to competition following his first injury, coach Carlo Ancelotti is taking the necessary steps to ensure a relapse does not occur.

The manager, the player, and all of the medical and recovery staff have determined that there is no reason to roll the dice.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said that during a recent training session, he bumped into Raul, a former striker and current Castilla manager, who confessed to him that he did not like his decision to retire from the game.

The midfielder added that he would now be interested in playing the Legends match where the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Raul participate. 

The veteran admitted that playing alongside these legends one day would be quite exciting.

“When I left the training yesterday, Raul was outside. He told me that he did not like the decision at first but found something positive because now I’m definitely playing this legends game with him,” said Kroos on his podcast

“He said I had to be there. Me and Zizou playing behind him, Figo on the right, and RC3 (Roberto Carlos) at the back. That could be funny,” he added.

During the early hours of Tuesday, May 21, Kroos announced that he would retire from professional football after the upcoming European Championship in his home country.

As a result, Real Madrid now have to work on an alternate strategy to plan life beyond Kroos. As suggested before, the Los Blancos are of the idea that at present, there is no one in the market who can fill the void.

On the other hand, though, Dani Ceballos’ chances of staying have now increased. At the same time, there are reports that Joshua Kimmich is being monitored, but nothing seems concrete yet.

For now, Real Madrid are largely expected to rely on the current roster as the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and even Jude Bellingham are more than capable of occupying Kroos’ position.

If even that does not work out, the team from the Spanish capital can look into the youth system to rope in a capable alternative.
