Ze Roberto thinks his countryman Vinicius Junior could be one of the next generation stars. Vinicius Junior went to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2018 with €46 million and is currently enjoying one of his best seasons in Madrid.
Ze Roberto was asked if Vinicius could become one of Real Madrid's stars; he toldGoal
"Absolutely, yes. He has huge potential and he will show his potential through time and seeking his place at the club.
"In order to fulfil this he will need confidence, and you only get confidence when you're having minutes."
Ze Roberto had similar opinions about young Brazilian star Rodrygo.
This does not apply only to him (Vinicius), but also to Rodrygo, who also has huge potential,"
"They will need to fulfil this potential without ignoring the psychological aspects
"They're the next generation, for sure. The last generation of players that have maintained their level during the last ten years - Cristiano Ronaldo, [Lionel] Messi, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, [Robert] Lewandowski - they will not last forever.
"So, we have to welcome this new generation and I put them, Vinicius Junior, [Kylian] Mbappe and Rodrygo, among this new generation of players with massive potential."
