Real Madrid coach Zidane pleased with Vinicius Jr for Eibar win

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was pleased with Vinicius Junior's performance for victory over Eibar.

Real Madrid were comfortable 2-0 winners on the day.

Zidane said of Vinicius: “He's capable of bringing a lot to the team and he did just that today.

"He's often started games this season, like he did the other day in Vigo, and today he came off the bench, but we're aware that when he's got space to run into, his tremendous pace means that he really make all the difference.

"Indeed, the second goal was all about that, he drove into the space and played in a perfect cross to Karim (Benzema)."
