Real Madrid head coach, Santiago Solari is pleased with how young winger Vinicius Junior has improved at the club.
Vinicius Junior scored his third goal of the season in the 3-0 win over Leganes, however he has made just one La Liga start.
The 18-year-old joined the Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the summer of last season and Solari is impressed with the positive steps he has made.
“It was a very good performance. Vinicius is making huge strides,” he told a news conference.
“He’s always had the talent but to develop it at the Bernabeu surrounded by wonderful players speaks volumes about his confidence, rawness and the enjoyment he exudes with the ball at his feet.
“He’s 18 years of age and you have to look after yourself in football. It’s important for him to keep going.
“We’re very happy with his current performance levels, he’s keen to take people on. He’s bold and that individual ability to beat a man is very important in modern-day football.
“His goal showed wonderful technique, and also how he puts defenders off balance. We hope he continues to grow both from individual and collective points of view.”
