Ancelotti, knowing that, has gone ahead to appreciate and praise the youngster who has contributed immensely to the club’s advancement this season.

Ancelotti while on interview today said: “At the game level I see a player with impressive one-on-one ability.

“Today’s Vinicius is the same that I saw when he was not here, what happens is that this season he started scoring and that has given him confidence.

“I am not a magician, just a coach who has to give players the confidence they need to express their qualities.” 

When asked if Vinicius Jr could continue in his present form for the team, he responded that “It depends on the personality, the character, the charisma, the quality that one has.

“Vinicius has taken the team on our backs on several occasions and at this moment is what he has to do, when he is more veteran he will be able to put his character and experience.” he concluded.

Madrid boast the longest unbeaten streak in LaLiga, having gone 22 games without defeat. However, they have won only one of their last nine visits to the Valencian sides in the top flight.

Vinicius Jr has played an integral role both in the club’s league cup campaign and champions league campaign last Tuesday.
