Real Madrid Castilla refuse to play Vinicius Junior in away games

Real Madrid Castilla will not play Vinicius Junior in away games.

AS reports the club is determined to protect their €45m asset from the rigours of lower division football and will only name Vinicius in the squad for home matches.

The 18-year-old was subjected to some rough treatment during the derby against Atlético B – including the dental attention of Tachi – and Real are keen to ensure that nothing befalls him on away trips with the reserve side.

The fact that Unión Adarve's pitch is artificial also played a part in Madrid's decision with Julen Lopetegui expected to ease the Brazilian into his first team squad over the coming months.
