‘We don’t need Mbappé’ – Real Madrid fans respond to Vinícius Jr. masterclass vs Girona

Supporters of Real Madrid have flooded to social media this evening, to provide their respective responses to the latest performance being put forth by Vinícius Jr.

Real, of course, are currently locked in action.

In a highly-anticipated La Liga showdown, Carlo Ancelotti’s troops have welcomed Girona to the Santiago Bernabéu, for a top of the table clash.

And, as things stand, it is Los Blancos who find themselves firmly in control of proceedings.

This comes amid nothing short of a masterclass of an attacking display on the part of the aforementioned Vinícius Jr.

First, with just five minutes on the clock, the Brazilian opened the scoring, courtesy of a stunning long-range drive into the far corner of the visitors’ net.

Then, late in the first-half, ‘Vini’ laid on Real’s 2nd of the night, cutting the Girona backline wide open with a magical ‘trivela’ assist, latched onto and expertly converted by partner in crime Jude Bellingham.

And, safe to say, Vinícius’ brilliance has not gone at all unappreciated on the part of his side’s fanbase.

Taking to social media in their absolute droves, the Blancos faithful have lavished praise on an oft-criticised performer, with many having gone as far as to make clear their feelings that prime summer transfer target Kylian Mbappé is not needed, owing solely to the magic possessed in Vinícius’ boots:
