"If I had to pick a role model for my child, I would pick Modric or Benzema, but never him." Even Carlo Ancelotti spoke out and had to defend his player after all the accusations.
During the match against Mallorca, Vinicius Junior saw a yellow card and, after the accumulation of five, he will be suspended for the next gane of Real Madrid in La Liga. He won't be able to play against Elche.
Furthermore, Vinicius Jr had a very controversial incident with the fans at Son Moix.

In that moment, the Brazilian star stopped and pointed out the logo of Real Madrid in his shirt to them.
Antonio Raillo took notice of that and, during the second half, he "invited" Vinicius to kiss the Mallorca logo on his shirt in a moment that almost sparked antoher huge brawl.
