Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has praised Vinicius Jr as the ‘best in the world’ following his impressive performance in their four-goal victory over Girona. Vinicius Jr not only opened the scoring for Madrid but also provided assists for Jude Bellingham and Rodrygo Goes, contributing to their comfortable win in the La Liga clash.
Thanks to Bellingham’s two goals, Madrid extended their lead over Girona to five points at the top of the league standings. Despite the overall team effort, Ancelotti singled out Vinicius for special praise after the match, describing him as the best player in the world. When asked about the best players outside of Vinicius, Ancelotti mentioned Bellingham, Rodrygo, Valverde, Camavinga, and Kroos.
Ancelotti was pleased with how well his team played and appreciated their commitment to defense despite an injury emergency. He expressed concern about Bellingham’s injury but stated that he had a sprained ankle and that his availability for the next game would be assessed. Despite this setback, Ancelotti was confident that his team could still deliver a strong performance against RB Leipzig in their upcoming Champions League round of 16 tie.
