In a stunning turn of events, Carlo Ancelotti, head coach of Real Madrid, has hailed Vinicius Jr as the ‘best in the world’ after his incredible performance in their recent victory over Girona. The young forward opened the scoring for Madrid and also provided assists for Jude Bellingham and Rodrygo Goes, playing a key role in their comfortable 4-0 win in La Liga.
Ancelotti was full of praise for Vinicius Jr after the match, singling him out for special recognition despite the overall team effort. When asked about other standout players outside of Vinicius Jr, he mentioned Bellingham, Rodrygo, Valverde, Camavinga, and Kroos.
The victory over Girona was widely considered one of Madrid’s best performances and results of the season. However, there were concerns about Bellingham’s injury following his impressive display on the pitch. Ancelotti confirmed that Bellingham had suffered a sprained ankle and that his availability for the next game would be assessed. Despite this setback, Ancelotti was pleased with the team’s performance and praised their comprehensive display in all aspects of the game. He also noted that the injury emergency had increased their defensive commitment.
Madrid will soon face RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie, providing another opportunity to test themselves against top opposition in Europe. With Vinicius Jr leading from upfront and a strong defensive unit at his back, Madrid will look to continue their impressive run of form and challenge for European glory once again this season.
