Palmeiras youth coach Paulo Victor: Endrick AND Vinicius Tobias will be great Real Madrid players

The former junior coach of Palmeiras starlet Endrick has no doubts about his potential.

Endrick will move to Real Madrid in 2024 when he turns 18.

Palmeiras youth coach Paulo Victor told AS: "The first impression was magnificent, he is a special player, different. Apart from the physical and technical and tactical condition, he is a player with a great daily routine; he works a lot and spends a lot of time developing himself; he is an extroverted player, he has a great capacity for interpersonal relationships and this adds a lot of value to his person.

"He is special, he is connected to the goal, he looks for it a lot. He has the ability to act as a single forward, with two forwards, coming from outside to inside... He is a very complete player for the offensive phase of the team."

Victor also coached Vinicius Tobias, who left Shakhtar Donetsk for Real Madrid last season.

He said: "There is no doubt, Tobias is a great player, he has a great capacity to execute all the needs of the winger. He has a great capacity in individual duels with the ball, the ability to play inside, outside, behind, a player who shows many technical qualities and intelligence for the game.

"There is no doubt that he will become a great player for Real Madrid's first team."
