Vitinha is proof that the life of a footballer takes many turns. In February, the Portuguese midfielder was in the news in L’Equipe, where Messi said some venomous words to the former Porto player during training. “In addition to being weak, you’re also hurting me.” The sentence came after a strong intervention by the Portuguese on the Argentine star.

Vitinha denied such an incident, but what is certain is that the midfielder’s first season in the French capital was not easy, as he did not have the immediate impact that any top team, which was not very patient with adaptations, would like.

The arrival of Luis Enrique and the departure of heavyweights Neymar and Messi contributed to the confirmation of the Portuguese star. He has scored four goals this season (one more than Gonzalo Ramos) and one assist, and has gained more freedom to appear in attacking areas, something that did not happen much last season.

Andre Fontaine, a journalist for the newspaper ’90 Football’, told our newspaper: “The departure of Messi and Neymar helped confirm it.” “They were strikers who had little desire to defend, and now there is a more balanced system with Mbappé on the left, Dembélé on the right and No. 9 Kolo Mwani or Gonçalo Ramos. Mbappe and Dembélé are not great defenders, but the system is more balanced.”

After scoring a brilliant goal against Monaco, Vitinha was decisive again in the French Cup match, completing a difficult (2-0) victory for the Parisians over lowly Le Havre. The midfielder played 18 matches this season for Paris Saint-Germain, 13 of them as a starter.

This new system is the result of the arrival of Luis Enrique who placed Vitinha on the left, he does not exactly play in the central area. This new position of Vitinha is very good for him, it is a change In the role at Paris Saint-Germain, in addition to the departure of Messi and Neymar, the arrival of Ugarte and the confirmation of Zaire Emery has also been positive for Vitenha. “Big reinforcements, but he brings a great balance on the defensive side, in recovering the ball and Vitenha can focus on a more attacking role. “Vitinha has benefited from Ugarte’s arrival,” said Andre Fontaine.
