Ancelotti gives new details on when Vinicius Jr will return from injury


Carlo Ancelotti has given new details about when Vinicius Jr will return from injury.

In fact, the Brazilian attacker has left behind the injury of a few weeks ago and is now 100 percent ready.

The Italian coach has confirmed that the attacker has returned and that he is 100 percent ready for the duel against Atletico Madrid.

However, Ancelotti has not indicated whether Vini Jr. will start the match from the first minute or will be included from the reserve bench.


“Vini will be in the team for Atletico. We will decide tomorrow whether he will start or not.”

“He is 100 percent recovered. He wouldn’t be in the team for tomorrow’s game, otherwise,” explained Carlo.

The 23-year-old was injured in the challenge against Celta Vigo a month ago. He was absent in the duels against Getafe and Real Sociedad in La Liga as well as against Union Berlin in the Champions League.
