Vinicius Junior has rubbished reports he is leaving Real Madrid after his side’s defeat to Real Sociedad in the Copa Del Rey.

Real Madrid suffered a humiliating defeat at home to Real Sociedad, which saw them knocked out of the Copa Del Rey.

The result has brought about widespread criticism.

One of last night’s underperformers was Brazilian Vinicius Junior. The teenager has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu.

Although he insists he is staying at Real Madrid.

In an interview reported by Goal, he admits that things did not go to plan. He is, however, committed to the cause and the team will fight on for the fans.

He said:

“There’s no choice, I want to stay at Madrid.”

“We were not in good shape.”

“It was a difficult match. The only Copa one played at home, and we lost.”

“I would like to ask the fans to keep this way up, we are going to fight until the end of the season in order to win La Liga and Champions League too.”

“It is hard to lose at home. We were unbeaten at home and we got beaten on the single match we can’t afford to lose.”

“But on the other hand, we keep fighting until the end, fighting to keep in good shape looking forward to the end of this season.”

The former Flamengo winger is thought to be at the top of Paris Saint-Germain’s wanted list.
