Vinicius: Neymar is my idol & I try to imitate many things he does on the pitch

Real Madrid starlet Vinicius Jr. has revealed that he looks up to Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar.

The 18-year-old has admitted that he tries to imitate his compatriot’s moves on the ball and he has also named Rolandinho as one of his heroes.

“Neymar is my idol and I try to imitate many things that he does on the pitch,” he told Fox Sports.

“He always sends me videos of his plays and he says: ‘do the same, youngster’.

“He does things like nobody else on the pitch.

“[Ronaldinho] is another player that I like and I watch his videos to learn.

“Neymar and Ronaldinho are two of my greatest idols.”

Vinicius is currently on holiday in Brazil as he wasn’t called-up by Seleceo coach Tite for the 2019 Copa America which is set to take place in his native country.
