Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior: Why Osasuna goal brought me to tears

Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior has explained his tears after scoring in victory over Osasuna.

Vinicius says he cried as being injured it had been a "little difficult" for him to rediscover the form of last season.

He said, "I cried because after my injury it was a bit complicated. It was taking a long time to play as before. I was not so happy.

"Today I was calmer and nothing better than before a derby. After so many games, I had never been so many without scoring.

"I am delighted to have scored again."
