Lto 21-22 has been the season of the consecration of vinicius. Karim Benzemathe great star of Real Madrid and probable Ballon d’Or 2022, placed him in the Top-5 World Cup before the Champions League final, which Vini chose with his twenty-second goal it’s from the season. To this he added 20 assistscounting the penalties caused (5), to make the leap that Real Madrid had been waiting for since 2018 landed on the Bernabeu.

His problems with the goal and in certain aspects of reading the game caused, in addition to a flood of jokes in bad taste, when not inadmissible disrespect towards a professional footballer, that he himself Benzema doubt his ability to be decisive. All the shadows of the past dissipated in a 21-22 season in which the winger established himself as one of the great world stars, vital in the conquest of a historic double Champions-Liga with Madrid.

But the data, beyond those 42 shares goal value, hide other aspects that should be highlighted. Vini was the outfield player with the most appearances in Madrid’s 21-22 season, 52a figure that was only matched by Thibaut Courtois. Third with more starts (47), first in wins (37like the Belgian goalkeeper) and again third in minutes played (4.272).

These data reflect not only the weight of Vini in the team, but another factor that has perhaps gone unnoticed. And it is that the Brazilian is practically immune to injury. In fact, since he played for Madrid he has only suffered one, torn ligaments in his right ankle in the infamous match Champions before him Ajax which was Madrid’s first European KO in four years.

Apart from that mishap, which kept him two months away from the playing fields, Vini has only suffered since 2018 a bowel problem (a low game) and the inevitable coronavirus (two games out, last season). The other absence of him, before the Granadait was for sanction.

Looking back, Vini has not suffered any muscle injury since playing for Madrid. Four years without suffering from the problems that martyr so many players, and against which the Brazilian seems to be vaccinated. His strength is another factor that explains why, with barely 21 years, he has already played no less than 170 games with Real Madrid, which represents an average of more than 42 meetings per campaign. And that despite the fact that he only began to be a regular in the team’s elevens in the 20-21 season. The Brazilian breaks records of precocity in the white club.

His future renewal is the logical step in the evolution of a footballer who has traveled a long and tortuous path in the four years since his arrival at Madrid. An adventure in which the physicist has always been on the side of the Brazilian marvel.
