Vinicius Jr is One of the best in the world right now-Ancelotti


Manager Carlo Ancelotti said Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jr is one of the best players in the world right now, adding that it was not a concern that their performances are so dependent on the Brazilian’s form this season.

The 22-year-old was key in helping Real win the LaLiga-Champions League double last season and will be expected to lead his side to a morale-boosting win over arch-rivals Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg on Thursday.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez agreed with Ancelotti on Vinicius and said that his side would be underdogs in Thursday’s clash in Madrid.
