Vinicius Jr was threatened in the Spanish Super Cup final against Barcelona while he was playing.
The Brazilian sensation was the hero for Real Madrid at Al Awwal Stadium on Sunday, scoring a sensational first hat-trick in a 4-1 El Clasico hammering.
He opened the scoring in the seventh minute before notching again three minutes later and completing his trio of strikes with a penalty in the 39th minute.
Jude Bellingham, having already assisted Vinicius, allowed the 23-year-old to take the spot-kick and he duly made it 3-1.
And Vinicius managed to rile up one Barcelona player during his outing. Footage from the game, courtesy of Movistar, showed Ferran Torres producing an X-rated rant about the former Flamengo winger.
The Spaniard was not happy with some of the antics from Vinicius and while sat on the bench, the former Manchester City forward told teammate Pedri what he would do to Vinicius if he insulted him.
“I’ll mess this guy up if he says anything, I swear,” Torres said.
“If the asshole tells me something I’ll f*** him up, I’ll and I’ll break him lad.”
Don Ferran Torres García.

During the game, Vinicius, who did Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘Siuu’ celebration, laughed in the face of opposition players and even gestured to the bench about what the score was.
After the game, Real’s No.7 admitted that he “talks too much” during the game and needs to “improve” in that department.
Speaking afterwards, he said: “It makes me sad. Everyone wants to fight with me, because they know it will be ‘Vini did this, Vini did that’ in the press.
“I try to stay calm and focused on doing as well as possible. It’s not all about me.
“Of course, I’m no saint. Sometimes I talk too much, sometimes I dribble when I shouldn’t. But I’m here to improve, and to be a role model to kids. I want to improve.”
Real are back in action against city-rivals Atletico on Thursday in the Copa del Rey.
