Ancelotti lauds Anfield hero Vinicius

Real Madrid’s Vinicius scored a brace and provided an assist in Real Madrid’s 5-2 thrashing of Liverpool at  Anfield. The Brazilian helped Real Madrid come back from 2-0 in the first half by scoring a brace and then was instrumental in the second-half completion of their comeback.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti praised his Brazilian star, who has been in the headlines a lot recently, calling him unstoppable.

“Today, in my personal opinion, he is the most decisive player in world football,” Ancelotti told reporters of Vinicius, who became the youngest away player to score twice against Liverpool at Anfield in major European competition since Johan Cruyff in December 1966.

“He doesn’t stop. He dribbles, assists, scores. Now he is the most decisive. Hopefully he can continue like this.”

When reporters mentioned how much Liverpool have regressed since the Paris final, Ancelotti admitted that he can only judge them from firsthand experience and that the Reds are still competitive.

He doesn’t stop. He dribbles, assists, scores. Now he is the most decisive.

“I only know that we have taken advantage in these 90 minutes and we have to manage the 90 in Madrid well,” Ancelotti added.

“Liverpool are a very competitive team, who have created many problems for us. Unfortunately, the tie has not ended.

“They are still a great team in my opinion. Liverpool play with intensity and a very high pace, it is difficult to see teams like that in Europe.

“They haven’t changed, but we proposed a game plan that was different from the one in the final. Then we played with a low block, and this time our plan was very different.”
