After 2-0 win upon Eintracht Frankfurt for the Uefa Super Cup, Vinicius Jr. had a special meeting in the Spanish capital. The striker exchanged shirts with Giannis Antetokounmpoplayer of Milwaukee Bucks and the Greek national basketball team.
During the conversation, the star of NBA praised the striker of the Brazilian team when introducing him to the coach and teammates and even put him above Neymar.

Giannis Antetokounmpo’s relationship with football dates back to his childhood. The player has already revealed that, as a child, he would have liked to become a professional athlete.
“When I was younger I played, I liked it, my father also practiced. I wanted to play football, not basketball when I was a kid”, said the star.
