‘His intention was not to play football’ - Getafe star Milla slams Vinicius Jr.

The Blancos attacker has been singled out for fresh criticism


Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr. has come in for some heavy criticism on Saturday night, owing to his latest display versus Getafe.

Brazilian international Vinicius, as expected, was afforded his latest start a short time ago.

This came as Los Blancos made the trip to the aforementioned Getafe, eyeing a return to winning ways in a bid to retake sole ownership of top spot in the La Liga table.

And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what Carlo Ancelotti’s troops managed.

A hard-fought 90 minutes at the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez ultimately gave rise to a 1-0 final scoreline, owing to Eder Militao’s early header:

As alluded to above, though, it is not the name of match-winner Militao which has taken its place centre stage in the headlines post-match.

Instead, this space has been reserved for compatriot and international teammate Vinicius Jr.

Despite not getting on the scoresheet on Saturday, wide-man Vinicius enjoyed another fine evening’s work.

The 22-year-old, courtesy of his near-unique blend of pace, dribbling ability and explosiveness, caused Getafe’s backline all sorts of problems over the course of the 90 minutes.

One individual who was evidently not as appreciative of the latest endeavours put forth by Real’s gifted attacker, though, comes in the form of Getafe star Luis Milla.

Speaking to La Liga TV post-match, midfielder Milla made use of the opportunity to take aim at Vinicius, in suggesting that the Brazilian was more concerned with winding up Getafe’s players than he was with the action itself on Saturday night.

“Vinicius’ intention was to get in everyone’s nerves, not to play football,” the Spaniard vented.
