"A phenomenon": Real Madrid forward lauded by Ancelotti, Benzema

According to Transfer Market Web, Vinicius Jr. has impressed not only manager Carlo Ancelotti but also fellow Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema after a stellar start to the 2021/22 season, with both stating that he is now performing at a very high level.

Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid from Flamengo in the summer of 2018 and has since established himself as a significant member of the club's first-team system. Initially assigned to the Castilla side, the Brazilian forward made an immediate impact on the senior team, with Los Blancos in dire straits in the 2018/19 season. The 21-year-old made development under Zinedine Zidane's supervision, but he also had a tendency to frustrate a lot owing to a lot of profligacy in front of goal. He blew hot and cold in 2020/21, which opened the stage for considerable rumors surrounding him during the summer transfer window.

Vinicius, on the other hand, made an impression on Carlo Ancelotti as soon as he took over at Real Madrid, which has helped him climb back up the pecking order. And he's repaid the Italian tactician's faith with a strong start to the season, scoring four goals and adding an assist in four games thus far. Now, in a chat with the press, Ancelotti expressed his admiration for the Brazilian forward, telling the press how confident he is right now, according to Transfer Market Web.

“He's been playing very well,” Ancelotti added. He is currently performing at a very high level. His talent is outstanding. He's been doing really well so far this season, and he needs to keep it up. In front of the goal, he exudes confidence and is poised and calm.” Not just Ancelotti, but even Karim Benzema, the Real Madrid talisman, has praised Vinicius, adding, "He's a sensation, he's young, and I really love talking and playing with him." He has proven that he is capable of contributing to this team.”

Vinicius has already put in a number of noteworthy performances in the first month of the new season, with his performance against Levante being the most crucial. As 2021/22 progresses, it will be intriguing to see if he can continue to make an impact in the same way he has thus far. He is unquestionably establishing himself as a crucial player for Real Madrid at the moment.
