Tremendous blow for Real Madrid. One of its most important figures, Vinícius Júnior, will be off the pitch until February. That is, the Brazilian will spend two and a half months in the infirmary. The forward suffers a tear in the femoral biceps with involvement of the distal tendon in his left leg, according to the medical report revealed by Real Madrid. The Brazilian player underwent an MRI this morning which confirmed the importance of the injury.
In this way, the player says goodbye to 2023 and will almost certainly miss the Spanish Super Cup, which takes place in the second week of January. The Real Madrid winger was injured in Brazil's duel against Colombia after suffering a spectacular tackle that forced him to leave the field of play before the half hour mark.
The alarms went off and it was the player himself who gave the first clues that it was a fibrillar rupture. “I think it's the same injury as last time. I received a blow there and I felt a little hurt later." It must be remembered that the injury Vinícius is referring to is the one he suffered in Balaídos against Celta on August 25 and which kept him out for a month. At that time case the injury was to the right leg.
National team commitments are costing Madrid dearly as Camavinga was injured in training with France and tore a ligament in his knee. He will also be out for about two and a half months.
