While Vini's season concluded earlier than expected due to unfortunate incidents involving racial slurs directed at him, he still had a productive campaign for Los Blancos, contributing to a total of 44 goals (22 goals and 21 assists) in 55 matches across various competitions, per Transfermarkt.

With his impressive performance, he has emerged as a strong contender, alongside Erling Haaland and Lionel Messi, for the prestigious Ballon d'Or award.

Nevertheless, it is his new haircut that has captured the imagination of fans, with many expressing their opinions that he should consider reverting to his signature hairstyle.

It is noteworthy that the 22-year-old's new appearance bears a striking resemblance to that of his Real Madrid teammate Eduardo Camavinga, Sportskeeda reports.

How fans reacted to Vini's looks?

@idoxvi outrightly said:

"It looks awful, man."

@DZ_RMFC added:

"It might be more annoying than Mariano's lobsters."

@TripleAFaris_, instead propounded a hilarious theory:

"Got that hair so that defenders will confuse him with Camavinga."

@icetritium2 made a humble appeal to Vini:

"Vini abeg remove am before season start."
