Vinicius already has hierarchy

His state of grace made Zidane double-maneuver against Mallorca: the Frenchman changed the scheme and moved Hazard, his great star.


A Vinicius (19 years old) was caught by the coronavirus promising what in the return of football has proven to be, a player already curdled, at his cooking point, that Lopetegui would say. And to find the best proof of this, you have to go to the epicenter of Madrid increasingly author, Zidane's blackboard: against Mallorca, the Frenchman played the scheme and relocated his main crack, Hazard, to fit him in that Fantasy left-handed lane Vinicius, who had barely coincided with Eden 80 minutes, never started, and who responded with 1-0.

Those airs of spring so madridistas that Vinicius drags in on Tuesday crept into the Valdebebas press room, where Zidane was asked by the journalist Fernando Burgos (Onda Cero) about the possibility of mixing the Rio de Janeiro frenzy and the Belgian class of Hazard . "I don't see it as impossible, but we try to make the player as comfortable as possible. Vini's position is Eden's, but it doesn't mean anything, I like to put the players in their place, but in a match they can play together", ZZ slipped, who had already devised the move with which he would maintain first place.

Starter and decisive in the great nights

A Zizou, very much in an interventional coach mode, did well, more for Vinicius than for Hazard, who asked for a break due to muscle fatigue and has to rescue the rhythm with which he reappeared. In a kind of 4-2-3-1, with the '25' in its natural habitat, the left, and the '7' hanging around the center, Madrid was working. The 1-0 (19 ') was signed by Vini, who drew a few criticisms with a beautiful definition. Before that touch, he had sprinted to defend to the center of the field and, immediately after, to the area to finish off Modric's service.In addition, he brushed the double in the 23 ', when his petroleum jelly crashed on the crossbar, and led his team in recoveries (9), fouls received (3), chances created (2, like Benzema), good dribbles (2, like Modric), anticipations (2, like Ramos) and back passes (2, like Bale). In his debt there is another fact: his continuous attempts made him lose 13 balls.

The explosion of Vinicius, who has been walked by the fine wire that often separates the genius from the blunder, has led his coach to give his plans some thought. Because Vini has begun to accompany the good feelings with good statistics, taking off the label that reduced him to an excellent shock: he has intervened in five goals in his last seven starts. That is three goals and two assists, and that has happened on nights that mark a season: the first leg against City, the Clásico at the Bernabéu, the lead against Real ... He has definitely knocked down the door.
