Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos has revealed he has picked up a calf injury whilst on international duty with Spain and appears set to miss the Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool and El Clasico clash with Barcelona.
The 35-year-old defender featured for Spain against Kosovo on Wednesday, March 31, but in an emotional Instagram post on Thursday, Ramos disclosed he had picked up a drag in his left calf.
Reports beginning of Spain indicate Ramos are going to be out for a month, meaning he won’t be available for Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool, with the first-leg happening next week. He also will miss El Clasico against Barcelona at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano on April 10.
Ramos began: ‘The truth is that I even have been a reasonably tough few weeks. An intervention is usually a sporting and emotional break.
‘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 , 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 the season 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.’
