“Madrid fans have to thank Vinicius”

1NEWSVinicius Junior has won the title Champions League first after helping Real Madrid became European champions for the 14th time, beating Liverpool 1-0. And he hopes to continue to have success at Madrid.

Vinicius was the only goalscorer in Saturday’s final in Paris, he scored with one touch after a pass Luka Modric split the Liverpool defense and Federico Valverde came in from the left flank before providing a low pass to Vini.

This win ensured a double title for Madrid after they clinched the LaLiga title on week 34 in April.

However, this feels special for Vinicius, because of his breakthrough in the Champions League, and he fought very hard to accept his achievements as he spoke with Movistar afterward.

“Inexplicable. I don’t know what I’ve done today,” he said. “Now to celebrate and have fun. We’ve enjoyed what we’ve done, got here and won… there’s nothing better than winning with this jersey.

“It was a dream for me. Scoring a goal in a final is the best thing a player can have. It’s a first. I want to keep winning and continue to make history here for a long time.”

Just like in the 2018 final against Liverpool in Kyiv, Modric was at his best as the game progressed. Croatian players appear so solid in midfield in terms of attack and defense. In fact, Madrid’s goals came from his brilliant vision.

The former Tottenham man was a key figure in the club’s journey in the knockout stages to reach the Champions League final, and with a contract extension, Modric is also intent on staying on and winning.

“We’re still letting what we’ve done sink in,” he told Movistar. “This club is without a doubt the greatest in the history of football. We have always said that, and we must repeat it – there is no one like Real Madrid.

“Character, never giving up, believing until the end. We did it today. Five Champions Leagues is impossible to imagine. But now I have five, and hopefully there will be more.”
