The Italian manager of Real spoke after the 2-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday.
Carlo Ancelotti (Real Madrid coach, 2-1 winner of Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday at the Bernabéu ) : “Vinicius is mentally well, all the support received in recent days has done him good. If he hadn’t had this discomfort in his knee, he would have played. We will see tomorrow (Thursday, editor’s note) and Friday how he feels, to make him play on Saturday (against Sevilla during the 37th day, editor’s note). A lot has happened in the past few days, and I believe that society, not just the world of sport, has realized something very important. This is a step forward, I hope this issue will be resolved soon. Everyone realizes what happened, what is happening. I don’t think that will happen again. There has been a collective awareness, things will improve quickly.
(On the decision to overturn Vinicius’ suspension) This decision surprised me. Honestly, I didn’t think that could happen. Their initial decision (the red card, editor’s note) had been a mistake, they changed their minds, and that seems correct to me. (On Rodrygo’s celebration) I didn’t see the gesture, but it was a gesture of support, of camaraderie towards a teammate, who was a little affected by everything that happened in the last few days , from a player who is a great friend of Vinicius“.
