Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti was seemingly frustrated with Vinicius Junior after the Brazilian failed to follow his instructions against Las Palmas.

Real Madrid won their match against Las Palmas 2-0 on Wednesday night in the seventh week of La Liga.

However, not everything has gone well and is in order at Los Blancos, as there is no peace at the beginning of the season and this is shown by a verbal clash between Ancelotti and Vinicius Jr.

“You have to play more freely, more open,” Ancelotti told the player in the second half of the game.

“What do you want me to do?” asked Vinicius, spreading his arms and pointing to the team structure on the field.

“You can’t play this way, you can’t play this way!”, the Italian coach replied.


Vinicius Jr spent most of the time on the left wing against Las Palmas. He was quite well contained – perhaps Ancelotti wanted him to roam out of position at times.

The Brazilian made his first appearance for Los Blancos after picking up an injury earlier this season.

Immediately after the end of the match, the camera caught Ancelotti and Vinicius passing each other without saying goodbye, just looking angrily at each other.

This is significant because the Real Madrid coach shook hands with all his other players as they left the pitch after the match.
