Fernando Hierro, a former Real Madrid international footballer, declared on Thursday that Brazilian Vinicius Júnior is a player he “loves because he brings joy to football and is different.”

Hierro, who during his time as a Real Madrid player played 601 official matches with the white jersey, positively valued the classification of his former team for the knockout stages of the Champions League, being the only Spaniard who, in the absence of a day to conclude the group stage, is assured of his presence in the next round.

“We know that the group stage there are many people who do not give it importance and understand that the draw is more beneficial and until the sixth game is always difficult. The teams suffer because every day the competition is more even and well structured. For the good of Spanish football, I hope that all the teams pass, “said Hierro, who participated in a LaLiga event at the Madrid Arena, home of the Davis Cup for tennis.

From the current Real Madrid squad, Hierro highlighted the Brazilian Vinicius Júnior, who is being one of the most decisive players on the team led by Carlo Ancelotti.

“I particularly love Vinicius, because he brings joy to football and is different. This season he is having a lot of success on goal and he plays beautiful football, which we like. I’m happy for him, because his evolution has been good, “he concluded.
