"It's really exciting to played and given my all for this shirt in 100 games ", commented the Brazilian.
Vinicius Jr. made his 100th appearance for Real Madrid in the game against Real Sociedad. The forward, who came on in the 61st minute, scored Madrid's goal in the 1-1 draw at the Di Stéfano and at the end of the match, club president Florentino Pérez presented him with a commemorative shirt. The Brazilian said: "It’s a big achievement to play 100 games in these colours. I’m delighted and this is a very special day for me. I’ve told my family that it’s been really exciting to make 100 appearances and to give everything for this shirt, which we love so dearly".

"In the first half, we played really well, but we gave them a bit of space in the second half and they punished us for it. We’re disappointed we didn't get the win we needed. We’d aimed to win all five games before the derby, but we got a draw in the last one. We have to continue on in this vein if we want to win things this season".

"We'll allways give our all for this shirt, which we defend and love so dearly. We're going to keep this up and keep fighting until the last minute. We've now got a week to work on things. We'll have to look at tonight's game and be focused for the Atlético Madrid match. We'll have to perform well if we're to win".
