Florentino Perez’s faith in Vinicius is paying off

Vinicius Junior-Real Madrid

Vinicius Junior has made an impressive start to the season with Real Madrid, and the youngster has been a key player for Carlo Ancelotti so far.

The 21-year-old Brazilian was linked with a move away from Real Madrid during the summer, notably in a swap deal involving Kylian Mbappe.

However, club president Florentino Perez refused to let the youngster leave, and he maintained that the Brazilian is not available at any price.

The Real Madrid president’s decision has been vindicated now, and the youngster is showing what he’s capable of.

The 21-year-old has been the best player at the club this season, along with Karim Benzema, and he has picked up four goals in four La Liga matches so far.

The Brazilian winger put on a quality display in the Champions League during the midweek against Inter Milan. There is no doubt that he has the potential to develop into a world-class footballer.

Vinicius’ quality was never in doubt, but the youngster was struggling with consistency issues.

It seems that the winger has managed to add more consistency and end product to his game.

His pace, flair, and goal-scoring ability this season has added a new dimension to the Real Madrid attack, and he has managed to establish himself as a starter ahead of the likes of Eden Hazard.

It will be interesting to see if the winger can continue his development with regular first-team football over the next few months.

Florentino Perez deserves immense credit for keeping faith in the youngster, but some of the praise has to go to the manager Carlo Ancelotti as well.

The Italian is a world-class coach, and he has proven his qualities across Europe with multiple clubs.

There is no doubt that the Italian has had a transformative effect on Vinicius’ game since his arrival.
