Following the uproar over Vinicius’ dance celebrations, Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar Jr. publicly supported Vinicius on social media. Koke Resurreccion, the captain of Atletico de Madrid, warned that if Vinicius celebrated similarly at the Wanda Metropolitano this weekend when Neymar stood by his side, “there would be trouble.”
Koke’s remarks don’t seem to have had an impact on Vinicius’ mindset, so the Real Madrid forward must now provide a solid performance when his team visits the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday and that’s what Neymar wants. The PSG player wants Vinicius to score against Atletico.

For his celebratory dancing moves after scoring goals, Real Madrid player Vinicius has drawn harsh criticism.
Because of comments made about his dancing, which has been compared to monkeys, the 22-year-old has experienced racist abuse. However, Neymar, who is no stranger to dancing to celebrate scores, has given the young striker his support.
Real Madrid competes against opponents from the city of Madrid in the El Derbi de Madrid this Sunday in La Liga at the Metropolitano.
The attention has been on Vinicius, Karim Benzema’s attacking partner, and his celebrations because the Frenchman is out of the game due to injury. Regarding the criticism Vinicius has faced prior to the game, Neymar expressed his desire to see the gifted forward score against Atlético Madrid.
