Bad news for Zinedine Zidane and for all madridismo who will lose Rodrygo for the next three months. The Brazilian footballer was injured last Wednesday in the league match against him Pomegranate in the stadium Alfredo Di Stéfano and he quickly learned that his injury was serious. The young extreme fell to the ground between ostensible gestures of pain calling for medical services because something was not right.
The feeling that Rodrygo transmitted was not good at all. The Real Madrid player made a powerful sprint down the left wing and just as he was about to enter the area, a Granada defender touched him from behind with his arm to destabilize him. The referee did not whistle the foul, but that was not going to be the worst news for the whites.
At the moment of falling to the ground, the face of the Brazilian changed completely. It didn’t take long for him to reach for the back of his thigh, knowing that something serious had happened. The medical services quickly jumped onto the pitch to attend to the player and after a first examination, they had to take him out on a stretcher and tearfully.
After the relevant tests, Real Madrid has informed through an official medical report in which the exact extent of the injury has been known. Rodrygo suffers a muscle injury affecting the tendon in the biceps femoris, that is, an injury even more serious than expected, since it will not be a simple muscle tear. Although the white club has not reported deadlines, it is expected that Rodrygo could be close to three months out.
The seriousness of the injury has caused the white club to look directly at the calendar to set a date for the return of the merengue player. Rodrygo will surely miss the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League against him Atalanta, and we will have to wait and see how it evolves to know if it will be able to be present in the second leg that will be played at the Alfredo Di Stéfano on March 16.
Other serious injury
In this way, Zinedine Zidane thus loses one of the most important players in the attack zone, since Rodrygo offers many good variants to the French coach. Able to play for both wings, the Brazilian also has the ability to be a great assistant and to score a lot, which undoubtedly makes his loss more sensitive.
Rodrygo’s is the last serious loss that Real Madrid has had and is being severely punished by injuries. A few months ago he had to see how players like Carvajal and Odriozola they were seriously injured and a significant number of games were lost, leaving the white defense very affected, especially in the right sector.
On that occasion, the injuries forced Zidane to reinvent himself and caused a player like Lucas Vazquez take a step forward to become one of the fittest names in the entire Madrid squad. Therefore, the French coach hopes to find solutions in players such as Odegaard, Hazard or Asensio, that they have not yet had the prominence expected of them and that they could make a virtue out of necessity and misfortune.
