Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr. nominated for La Liga Player of the Month for March 2024

Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr. is among five players nominated for the La Liga Player of the Month award for March 2024. While there is still one matchweek remaining in the month of March, La Liga have announced the nominees for the POTM award.

Vinicius is one of the names on the list as he has been in stellar form for Real Madrid this month. The Brazilian winger has scored five goals and provided one assist in just three league games in March.

He scored a brace in Los Blancos’ 2-2 draw at Valencia before getting a goal and an assist in their 4-0 win over Celta Vigo. Vinicius also scored a brace in their 4-2 win over Osasuna in their last La Liga game before the international break.

Vinicius has only won the La Liga Player of the Month award once before in 2021. He is, however, one of the leading candidates to win it this time around.

Let’s take a look at the players the winger will be competing with for the award.
