‘You’re gonna win the Ballon d’Or next season?!’: Barcelona defender Eric Garcia is caught on camera mocking Real Madrid star Vinicius Jnr after he was easily dispossessed by Adama Traore during his side’s humiliating Clasico defeat
- Vinicius Jnr has had a strong season at Real Madrid, scoring 17 goals for the club
- This has led to some believing he could soon become a Ballon d’Or contender
- He struggled to make an impact in Sunday’s El Clasico as Barcelona won 4-0
- Barcelona’s Eric Garcia questioned his Ballon d’Or credentials during the game
Eric Garcia appeared to question Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jnr’s Ballon d’Or credentials during Barcelona’s dominant 4-0 win in El Clasico on Sunday.
Vinicius Jnr has had a standout campaign at the Bernabeu this season, scoring 17 goals in all competitions for Carlo Ancelotti’s side. At the age of 21, he seems to have a huge future ahead of him, with some tipping him to become one of the world’s best players.
However, he failed to shine against Barcelona in his latest outing, and Garcia made it clear that he wasn’t impressed by the youngster.

After Vinicius Jnr was knocked off the ball by Adama Traore in the latter stages of the game, Garcia pointed at the Brazilian forward and shouted in a dismissive tone: ‘You’re gonna win the Ballon d’Or next season?! The Ballon d’Or?’
Garcia’s words did not come back to haunt him on the night as the defender ensured that his side kept a clean sheet with relative ease.
Indeed, he made the comment when his team were in a commanding position thanks to a brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and further goals from Ronald Araujo and Ferran Torres.

He was not the only one to spot that Vinicius had endured a difficult evening either.
Barcelona pointed out his shortcomings on Twitter by posting the message: ‘Check Araujo’s pocket,’ highlighting how the full-back had not given Vinicius Jnr a chance to get into the match.
Vinicius Jnr had been directly involved in at least one goal in each of his previous four league matches heading into the eagerly-anticipated El Clasico clash.
It was not his night on Sunday, though, much to the delight of Garcia and his teammates.
