Vinicius named Champions League Player of the Year

Vinicius Junior has been named Champions League Player of the Year.

“UEFA’s Technical Observers’ Panel has named Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior as the UEFA Champions League Player of the Season for the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League,” UEFA announced on Wednesday.

Real Madrid won the UEFA Champions League (UCL) final of the 2023/24 season with a 2-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium in London, England, on Sunday (June 2).

In the 37th minute of the second half, Dortmund defender Ian Matthiessen’s pass through the Dortmund defense fell to Bellingham, who played a pinpoint pass to an unmarked Vinicius. Vinicius calmly slotted home to make it 2-0.

His performances in the Champions League this season have been tremendous, with a goal against Leipzig in the round of 16, two assists against Man City in the quarterfinals, and two goals against Bayern Munich in the final, giving him four goals and two assists in the tournament alone.

In addition to his six goals and four assists, Vinicius was also at the top of the stat sheet with 19 chances created, 37 successful dribbles, and a 69.2% long pass completion rate.

Vinicius, who signed a contract extension in October 2023, is under contract with Madrid until 2027, and spoke about his future after the 카지노 final at Wembley, saying he wants to stay at Madrid forever.

He said: “I am very happy to have won another Champions League title with this club that has given me so much. It’s an incredible thing. Not everyone can experience it and win it. We struggled a lot with injuries throughout the season. Everyone has worked incredibly hard to get to this point.”

“I’m very happy to be here for so many years. I hope the 실시간 바카라사이트 president will renew my contract because I want to stay here forever and keep making history like Carvajal, Nacho, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.”

Now that the season is over, Vinicius will prepare for the Copa America. He has been at the top of his game this season and hopes to continue his good form with the national team.
