Radical change for Vinicius Jr: A different technique when hitting the ball

07 Aug 2021

Carlo Ancelotti will be forced to rely upon Vinicius Jr this season, with the Brazilian now entering his third season with Real Madrid first team, and although something happens with Kylian Mbappe, he will likely play most matches from the left this term, and he has displayed a new technique in hitting the ball.

Pre-season training is often a time for players to try out a new skill, trying to improve or widen their game, and this appears to have been the case for the former Flamengo prodigy.

A video posted on the official Real Madrid Instagram page showed this new shooting technique, with Vinicius Jr looking calmer when striking the ball, albeit this wasn’t in a game scenario.
