La Liga: He has received support – Ancelotti speaks on Vinicius Jr leaving Real Madrid
After the Brazilian winger suffered racial taunts last weekend at Valencia, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti insisted that Vinicius Junior would not be leaving the team this summer.
Vinicius has support from his Brazilian international teammates, according to Ancelotti.
During Real Madrid's 1-0 La Liga away loss on Sunday at the Mestalla, a sizable contingent of Valencia supporters targeted Vinicius, making monkey gestures and noises at the 22-year-old attacker.
Speaking ahead of Real Madrid’s La Liga clash with Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday, Ancelotti said at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday when asked about the player’s future at the club: “Vinicius loves football, and Vinicius loves Real Madrid. I think that he is not really planning to leave; that is not what he is thinking here.
“He has received support from his rivals, from his international teammates, and from football legends, so in this respect, he is very calm.
“As I said, Vinicius loves Real Madrid; he loves living in this country, and he wants his future to be related to this club. Obviously, these things upset you, but his main idea is not to leave Real Madrid or the country.
“What he says is because he has certain feelings, but what he wants is to continue playing for Real Madrid.”
