Real Madrid starlet Vinicius Junior needs to remain calm and work hard to adapt to the team's style of play, retired Brazilian winger Savio has stated.
The 18-year-old impressed with Los Blancos during the pre-season, but Savio believes Vinicius Junior has a lot of work to do to rise up the pecking order.
"I understand the situation and the desire of Vinicius to play as soon as possible," he said.
"It is normal for Real Madrid fans to want to see him on the field, but I also know that it is not easy.
"They have a top-quality squad, with young players who they occupy the same position.
"In the United States he did very well, but he has to be calm, very calm, and work hard.
"He has to adapt to the Real Madrid style, the Spanish style and the style of play in Europe.
"He has to improve his tactical ability and adapt with his teammates and see the standard of the Spanish league.
"He is a very young player, he is 18 years old.
"You have to be calm, he must know how to wait for his chance and when he has to try to do his best."
Nevertheless, Savio believes coach Julen Lopetegui will slowly integrate the Brazilian youngster into his squad and insists the former Flamengo man has all the tricks of the trade.
"I also understand the part of the club and the coach, that you have to go slowly to get to know the player and to start playing him at the right time," he continued.
"Here in Brazil I really want to see him on the field because he is a very young player, but a very talented one.
"He has a lot of speed, a lot of technique and is good at dribbling.
"But he has a lot of things to do, he has to be calm and work.
"He is at the club where everyone wants to play.
"I really like him as a player and as a person and I am very happy that he is at Real Madrid."
So far this season Real Madrid have played two official matches, but Vinicius Junior hasn't been on the pitch yet.
