Carlo Ancelotti reveals that Vinicius will play on Real Madrid’s left even if Kylian Mbappe arrives
“Vini is a player who has to be on the left, and he’s going to play there no matter who his teammates are,” he said when asked whether Mbappe’s arrival would force him to change Vinicius’ role.
This season, Vinicius has contributed eight goals and three assists in 14 appearances in La Liga and two goals and five assists in five Champions League appearances. He looks a different player to the one of previous years.
Mbappe actually has the exact same numbers as Vinicius in the Champions League this season – two goals and five assists in five appearances. In Ligue 1, he’s contributed seven goals and seven assists in 13 appearances.
