One of the extra marches of Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid is certainly Vinicius Junior. And much of the credit goes to Reggiolo’s technician. The Brazilian told of his relationship with King Charles, made up of affection and … slaps
Net of a Benzema season that can lead him to the Ballon d’Or and a Courtois never praised enough, one of the extra gears of Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid is certainly Vinicius Junior. The Brazilian, who arrived at Casa Blanca very young and with the label Neymar again, did not have a too simple life at the beginning of his Madrid adventure. The games played with Castilla seemed like a rejection for a boy paid 45 million euros and in Spain a mocking refrain had also spread for him, who wondered when the Brazilian would have definitively exploded. His response arrived on the pitch in the recently finished season, between records of precocity and outstanding performances, including the goal that gave Real to the Fourteenth.
And as the Brazilian explains, much of the credit goes to Reggiolo’s coach. Speaking to Well, Amigos! on SporTV, Vinicius told about his relationship with Ancelotti. Made of affection and … smacking. “He loves the young people who work with him and we love him too. He always talks to us about Kaká, Pato, Rivaldo, Richarlison. He always tries to help us and has a very young staff who give us the information and self-confidence we need. Sometimes he even gives us a few slaps, because we need those too. He gives them to me and to Militao. But the staff tells us everything, if there is a faster or slower full-back, if the opposing goalkeeper passes the ball in one way or another, because we can’t see all the games. “

Sometimes, I ask to be replaced in one game or another. Tite often asks Ancelotti how he could help me also in the national team, they feel good with each other, they understand each other. But there are differences between the two teams, in the national team we play more offensive football, Tite always asks us to attack. At Real I start a little further back. And in the national team we play more with the ball at our feet, but in modern football you have to go back to defending, otherwise they are problems for everyone “.
Impossible not to mention Neymar. So Vinicius has only honey words. “He is our best player, the opponents focus on him and we can take advantage of the spaces, because he has the quality to find us with passes. For me he has done a lot, he is a great friend. The pressure for him is enormous, he calls it responsibility. And he takes it away from us, from those who arrive now. Playing in the national team creates a lot of pressure, but we are getting used to it. “And who knows, maybe even Tite … doesn’t use King Carlo’s techniques …
