Vinicius, you are the Neymar of 2014, according to Tite.

The most expensive Brazilian footballer in the world right now is Vinicius.

The player's influence in his nation is crucial since Real Madrid and LaLiga Santander champions.

This fact is especially important in years when there is a World Cup.

He is highly regarded by Tite, coach of the Brazilian national team, and he frequently demonstrates this admiration.

Tite stated on the Sexta Estrela podcast that Vini was the Neymar of 2014 when they were practising together because the Neymar for Barcelona and the national team at the time played on the wing, as opposed to the Neymar who plays centre field now.

Neymar is rumoured to make more errors there. But because everything he does creatively there will be decisive, his position causes him to make more blunders.

Additionally, Tite recently acknowledged to MARCA that he had sought counsel from Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti so that Vinicius might represent Brazil in the same manner as he did for Real Madrid.

According to the coach, "His maturity at Real Madrid took two years, but it's much faster in the national squad."

It sounds more natural, as though he has less burden on his shoulders.

In order to assist the national team play like Real Madrid does, I consulted Ancelotti for advise on what we could do and what tactical duties they performed there.


One on one, we discussed offensive scenarios that would allow him creative flexibility. It's a kind and honest gesture from two coaches who want to bring out the best in him.
