La Liga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 13/05/2018

Former Flamengo and Real Madrid midfielder Dejan Petkovic has criticised Los Blancos' target Vinicius style of play, according to report in Marca.

The Serbian is of the view that Vinicius is very selfish, he dribbles too much and loses possession a lot.

Vinicius had forced his way into the senior team on a regular basis this term, the former Real Madrid midfielder doesn't believe the Brazilian is yet ready to contribute for Los Blancos.

"Vinicius is very selfish, he dribbles too much and loses possession a lot," he explained to Sport TV.

"He's a very good individual but not a great team player.

"He takes too many touches, dribbles without creating a goal and looks for spectacular diagonal passes."

Whilst it hasn't yet been decided just when the Brazilian forward will arrive in the Spanish capital, he has contributed four goals and two assists in the six matches he's played in the Brazilian League and Copa Libertadores this season.

Vinicius will be a bonfide squad member of Real Madrid team next season.
