The kind of patience that Real Madrid have shown with a number of their young players in recent times is truly remarkable. It is rare for big teams to give their players one chance after the other, but Los Blancos have done just that with quite a few, who are not repaying the faith that the club showed in them.

Of course, the prime example of that is Vinicius Jr, who developed into a superstar last season. For years, he had been considered a great dribbler with terrible finishing. He finally found his scoring boots in the previous campaign though and incredibly turned into one of Real Madrid’s most consistent scorers within a very short span of time.

This time around, it looks like it is Rodrygo who is staking his claim to be the club’s next big superstar. The Brazilian winger is having a remarkable campaign and has to be considered a starter now.

According to stats from Transfermarkt, Rodrygo has scored 3 goals and provided 2 assists in 5 appearances in La Liga this season till now. And he made his presence felt in the Champions League as well, with a goal and an assist vs Shakhtar Donetsk.

Real Madrid appear to have discovered their next big superstar

It must not have been easy to keep providing Rodrygo with the chances when he was struggling to deliver the goods on a consistent basis.

But now, Real Madrid seem to be reaping the rewards of the patience and faith that they showed in the Brazilian. He is playing some incredible football this season and might very well turn out to be their first-choice right winger for the next decade.

Both Vinicius and Rodrygo found the back of the net vs Shakhtar Donetsk, and that could be Real Madrid’s wing partnership for years to come. So get used to it.
