"It was hugely important to win the game. It's a good result, we have to carry on like this and play the same way", said the Brazilian, who bagged a brace in the match.
Vinicius Jr. was named Man of the Match in the meeting between Real Madrid and Liverpool at the Alfredo Di Stéfano. The Brazilian, who hit two of the game's three goals, said: "It was hugely important to win the game. It's a good result, we've worked hard all year to win every game at the key stage of the season. We didn't let them create much at all, we have to keep this up and continue playing like we did today".
“The coach always transmits the sense of calm we need to put what we work on in training into practice. We did everything he asked of us today and we did it well. Toni (Kroos) is unbelievable, he's a wonderful player. Every time he steps onto the pitch, he shows his immense class, nobody plays like him. I'd like to thank him for the pass, I'm delighted to have scored”.
Why do you kiss the badge after scoring?
“Because I work really hard and I dreamed of playing for Madrid and alongside the greatest players in the world and also because of the hard work we’ve put in and the desire we’ve shown right throughout the season. I always want the best for our fans and for everyone connected to the club. I continue to work hard and my teammates give me the strength and confidence to score the goals that we need in the key moments. I was tired when I came off because I gave my all for this shirt, which I love so dearly”.
Status of the tie
“It’s as you were. Liverpool have got a good team and I'm sure that they'll come out all guns blazing to win the game, but we have to be focused, just as we were tonight, and win the match”.
