Vinicius could be the new Neymar

Marcelo Lins Martins, the renowned Brazilian football federation academy instructor and ex-fitness coach at Bayern Munich, has expressed about Vinicius and has claimed he could reach the levels of Neymar. “Vinicius is at Real Madrid, he’s 19-years-old and very young,” the Brazilian football expert told reporters. “If there is patience with him and if the work is done with no rush, then he is a player who could be the new Neymar. Gabriel Jesus has many potentials at Manchester City. While here in Brazil there are players who like such people like Gabriel Henrique and Gabigol at Flamengo. If the work is done well at the youth development level, then we will see more and more players.”

“Brazil football has always had some of the best players in the world, but this has not been the case for several years now because Europe has taken a big step forward when it comes to the youth generation. Brazil and Latin America are still in this action”. For Lins Martins, there is no doubt that Neymar is still the best Brazilian player. “I think Neymar is the best Brazilian footballer, he is a complete player,” he explained. “He’s someone who can improvise, and he has great skills. He’s good at one-on-one situations, finishing and helping. Neymar is an outstanding player. I think he can still grow a little more.”
