Ex-Real Madrid star sends advice to incoming Endrick

A former member of the attacking ranks at La Liga giants Real Madrid has on Monday forwarded some advice to the incoming Endrick.

Frontman Endrick, of course, is primed to link up with Carlo Ancelotti’s squad in Madrid this coming summer.

As much comes after the board at the Santiago Bernabéu struck a big-money deal for his signature back in 2022, with the attacker having since continued his development on loan in his home country with Palmeiras.

Despite his tender years, Endrick is already considered one of football’s next superstars in the making, expected to light up Spanish football for years to come courtesy of his equally impressive technical and physical qualities.

As alluded to above, though, on Monday, a player to have pulled on the famed white of Real Madrid during his own playing days was asked if he has any advice for the soon-to-be Blancos striker.

And Júlio Baptista, during an interview with Marca, went on to suggest that Endrick listen to fellow countrymen Vinícius Jr. and Rodrygo upon his arrival:

“Madrid knows how to handle it very well. They have greats like Vini and Rodry, and Endrick will have their support to show him the way.”

Baptista, from here, then called for patience during Endrick’s adaptation period at the Bernabéu:

“You have to be patient with him, because the pressure will be great. He has talent… and a lot of it.”
