The president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, has predicted that Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior will win the Ballon d’Or soon.
Tebas commented in response to the racism allegations involving Vinicius during Real Madrid’s game against Valencia last weekend. In a news conference, Tebas asserted that Vinicius might succeed Lionel Messi as the best player in La Liga, replacing the legendary Barcelona player.
Tebas said (via MARCA):
“Vinicius is going to win the Ballon d’Or in the future. He is a very important asset for Real Madrid and his team.
“As an introduction, I want my personal relationship with Vinicius to be known. When he joined the first team, they asked me who was the player who could replace [Lionel] Messi and I said it was Vinicius. This was quite some time ago.”
