Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior praised Zinedine Zidane and says some players get nervous when they speak to him.

"When a guy like that, who played very well, is on the bench and talks about anything, you pay attention, right? Sometimes we are a bit nervous when we are going to speak to him," Vinicius told Esporte Espectacular on Sunday.

The 18-year-old is recovering from an ankle injury and says Zidane "does everything so that you can only focus on playing football" and that is "waht makes a player feel happy".

"The player knows he will go on the pitch and he can run not for him but for all the players and the shirt he wears too."
