Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid, believes that there are many players within the Royal Club who can win the Ballon d’Or in the future.
But after Barcelona’s last match, in which Real Madrid won 4-1, Perez chose Vinicius Junior to be the independent Ballon d’Or champion.
This is what was reported by the newspaper “Defense Central”, which indicated that Perez went to Vinicius after the match and clearly told him, “You will win the Ballon d’Or very soon.”
Perez’s speech to Vini specifically seemed very logical, after the Brazilian international scored three hat-tricks against Barcelona and led Real Madrid to win the Spanish Super Cup.
It is known that Perez is always personally interested in Real Madrid being present for the Ballon d’Or, and he also provided great support to Karim Benzema to obtain it in 2022 for his amazing levels.
It seems that Perez’s eyes will now be directed towards Vinicius to greatly support him in becoming the first star for Real Madrid and winning these major international awards.
Vinicius scored 9 goals this season with Real Madrid in all tournaments, and if the Royal team succeeds in achieving the championships, he may be an extraordinary candidate, along with Jude Bellingham, to win the Ballon d’Or.
The English international remains the first and most prominent star currently at the Santiago Bernabeu in terms of his overall performance this season in all tournaments, as he is still the top scorer with 17 goals.
Bellingham is distinguished from Vinicius by being calm and not provoking crises, unlike the Brazilian who always quarrels with fans and competing players.
But in any case, Perez’s intention seems clear to support the emergence of Vinicius in the future, and this will not conflict with supporting Bellingham either.
