Ancelotti gives injury update on Vinicius and other Real Madrid players

Carlo Ancelotti has given an injury update on his team ahead of Sunday’s clash with Real Sociedad.

You’d recall that Vinicius Jr got off injured early in the game against Celta Vigo, and is yet to return to the team.

Speaking on the Brazilian, Ancelotti said: “I don’t know the exact day [he will be back], but Vinicius is recovering very well.

“We just don’t want to force his recovery. He is increasing his workload. 

“Next week he will start doing some of the work with the team. I think that he will recover before the six weeks that they have said.”

The Real Madrid boss also gave an update on Ferland Mendy and Dani Ceballos, who have been out as well.

Carlo Ancelotti told the media: “Ceballos will be [available] against Sociedad, but Mendy won’t. He has to continue with his plan. I think he will be in the squad on Wednesday [v Union Berlin].”
