‘I don’t see it as impossible, not that, but we try to make the player [Vinicius] as comfortable as possible,’ Zidane said, as reported by Goal.

‘His 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. I have no doubts about that.

‘He [Vinicius] is 19 years old, he must learn many things safely, tactically, et cetera, but he’s a boy who wants to work and that’s what he’s doing.

‘He did great the other day, not just offensively. The good thing is that we have a very good player for the present and the future of Real Madrid.’

Zidane’s side face Real Mallorca on Wednesday evening where they will be looking to move back above rivals Barcelona to the top of LaLiga with all three points.
