Zidane has recovered players returning from the international break and continues preparations for Saturday’s league game against Eibar. Courtois and Modric appear to have overcome their fitness problems but the same cannot be said for Sergio Ramos, who has suffered another muscle tear injury. It is a severe setback for Madrid. The captain did not take part in today’s session, and exercised apart in the gym after coming on as a late sub in Spain’s World Cup qualifier against Kosovo in Seville. But soon afterwards, the club announced that Ramos has suffered a calf muscle injury. Diaros AS understands that he faces up to a month on the sidelines.
“Following the tests carried out today on our captain, Sergio Ramos, by the Real Madrid medical department, he has been diagnosed with a muscular injury to the internal calf in his left leg. His recovery will be monitored” Real Madrid said in a statement.
