The World Cup-winning defender, who has struggled with niggling knocks this season, is now nursing a hamstring problem
Sergio Ramos has suffered a fresh injury setback at Real Madrid and now faces a race against the clock to work for the club again as his contract runs down.
Fitness issues are endured by the planet Cup-winning defender on a daily basis this season, with a hamstring complaint now keeping him on the sidelines.
The 35-year-old, who returned to action during a Champions League semi-final defeat at Chelsea, are going to be hoping that he’s not out for long as he’s thanks to hit representation this summer.
Real have said during a statement released on the club’s official website: “Following the tests administered on Sergio Ramos by the important Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with tendenitis within the semimembranosus muscle of his left hamstring.
“His recovery will still be assessed.”
How has Ramos reacted?
A long-serving member of the Blancos squad is approaching the top of his 16th season at Santiago Bernabeu and admits to being left frustrated at how the 2020-21 campaign has played out.
Ramos has posted on Instagram: “The truth is that I even have been a reasonably tough few weeks.
“Luckily, for a couple of days now I even have been feeling better, but in football as in life, bad luck also plays a task .
Yesterday, after the sport [against Chelsea], i used to be training on the pitch and that i noticed a puncture in my left calf. Today I even have been tested and it’s been confirmed that I even have a muscle injury.
“If there’s something that hurts me, it’s not having the ability to assist the team in these highly demanding matches during which we play and also not having the ability to return the love and energy that you simply transmit to me on the pitch.
“I can’t do anything but speak frankly, exerting and cheer on the team with my soul.”
How many games has Ramos missed this season?
Knee problems are an only too familiar theme for Ramos within the current campaign, with surgery required at one stage.
A number of muscle complaints, and a bout of Covid-19, have also kept a talismanic presence out of Zinedine Zidane’s plans.
In total, Ramos has missed 32 games and appeared in just 21 across all competitions.
With Real now out of Europe following their defeat to Chelsea, there are just four fixtures remaining on their schedule – starting with a crunch clash reception to Sevilla on Sunday.
