Real Madrid coach Ancelotti praises 2-goal Vinicius Jr

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti was delighted with two goal Vinicius Junior for their 3-3 draw at Levante.

Vinicius struck a late double to help earn the point for Real.

Ancelotti said, “Vinicius Jr. has the quality and is very quick. Is he a great goalscorer? I don't know about that, because he enjoys playing out wide. He needs to score goals like the first one he got, by taking players on, because he's quicker than his opponents. It's tougher for him when in the box, but given his quality, he's capable of scoring goals from range and in one-on-one situations.

"He'll be an important for us. He may start next week's game, we'll have to see. It's more important that you're on the pitch at the end of the game rather than at the start and he did that today thanks to his freshness and ability."

He added: “Vinicius Jr. has scored three goals in two matches and that's the sign of a really important player. I don't give too much importance to who starts because I've got such a good squad. We've scored a lot of goals in these first two games. The problem isn't whether Vinicius Jr. starts or not, the concern is if he isn't scoring but he got two goals today."
