Real Madrid announced the signing of Vinicius JR from Flamengo who will join Los Blancos in two years, when he becomes an adult. However, the legendary Brazilian player Pele has some wise words to address Vinicius ahead of this big move.
“The important thing, which I always followed in my life, was what my father often told me: never believe that you are the best player in the world, never. This is the message I can give you because you’ve already decided where to play. God gave me my talents but I could never believe I was better than the others. I could be the same, or in good form, but I’d never believe I was the best.”
Pele also warns, that Vinicius always has to remain professional and humble and never refuse to learn.
“There’s always something to learn. Whenever you enter the field, you believe that you will be Vinicius, you will play, you will score your goal, but never believe that you’re better than the others,” Pele noted.
To recall, Real Madrid tabled 45 m euros for the promising young star who is already playing for Flamengo senior team at his 17 years.
