“I’m very happy to be able to win another Champions League with this club, which has given me so much,” 23-year-old Vinicius said.

The 20-year-old scored four goals and provided five assists in the Champions League for Real, who also won the Spanish league title.

“I can’t put it into words,” he said. “It’s the best night of my life. It’s got to be up there in terms of the perfect season.”
