Brazilian and Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr. has been using his free time productively while recovering from his hamstring injury. The player, who sustained the injury in August, recently posted several pictures on Instagram with Latin singer Rauw Alejandro. The two met at an exclusive event hosted luxury brand Off-White in Madrid.
The event was attended various celebrities, including Juan Iglesias from Getafe, Ivana Andres, and Cruz Cafune, as reported Bernabeu Digital. Vinicius and Alejandro both shared pictures on their social media profiles, with Alejandro captioning one of his Instagram stories with “With the 7,” referring to Vinicius’ jersey number.
Notably, Alejandro has shown an interest in the football world before. Last year, he spent time with players like Paulo Dybala and Paul Pogba. He has also been spotted at a Real Madrid match with his ex-girlfriend Rosalia. In fact, earlier this year, Alejandro made a bet against Barcelona with Rosalia, but unfortunately lost. As a result, he had to clean his entire house for a month, as he lamented on Instagram.
Regarding Vinicius’ injury, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti stated that the player is recovering well and will soon return to training with the team. While the exact timeline for his return is uncertain, it is expected to be before the anticipated six-week period. There is even a possibility that Vinicius could be available for the upcoming Madrid derby, according to Catalan outlet Mundo Deportivo.
In conclusion, Vinicius Jr. has been utilizing his time off the field to connect with other celebrities, including Rauw Alejandro. Despite his injury, the player is making progress in his recovery and is expected to rejoin the team soon. This news comes as a boost for Real Madrid, who have been dealing with multiple players on the sidelines due to injuries this season.
