Brazil coach Tite: Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr very different for Real Madrid

Brazil coach Tite is confident Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior will succeed with Real Madrid.

Tite is watching the progress of both Brazilian youngsters with keen interest.

He told AS: "Vinicius and Rodrygo are players who are going through a stage of maturation and development.

"They are very young players with different characteristics. Rodrygo is essentially technical and intelligent. Finer. Vinicíus is a flank player, more with individual plays and less combinations, a dribbler. High speed. Wilder.

"I am not worried about Vinicius's problems with the goal. Because he is still a very young player and he needs to develop in the final third because it is a virtue that he did not have when he played in Brazil. People have to understand that he is a developing player."
