Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has been unfortunate with continuous injuries and suspensions among his defenders this season, but he has received some good news ahead of their game against Sevilla
Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal will both miss Los Blancos’ game on Saturday against Sevilla due to suspensions, whereas centre-back Raphael Varane will be out with an injury as well. In addition, Jesus Vallejo picked up a muscular issue earlier, and was not sure whether the French manager can count on him either.
However, as it turns out Zidane can include Vallejo in Madrid’s squad during the weekend, as the defender has been able to recover from his injury in time, saving some hours of headache for his manager.
According to MARCA, early on Friday morning the forecast didn’t look so great, but he was ultimately able to join the table for training and Zidane confirmed he’d be available during the coach’s press conference.Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…
As a result, the 20-year-old defender will most likely start the game along with Nacho in the centre of the defense, which will be Vallejo’s fourth game this season, but maybe the most important one yet.
The youngster’s career hasn’t been easy and simple so far in the Spanish capital, as he hasn’t played a whole lot due to injuries, and naturally finding himself low in the pecking order with stars like Varane and Ramos ahead of him. If that’s not enough, Vallejo has also picked up a suspension in the first leg of their Copa del Rey game against Fuenlabrada.
This weekend, with a space in the lineup with his name on it, it seemed he’d have to forfeit an opportunity once again, but in the end Vallejo will come to the rescue, MARCA continues.
After all the unfortunate happenings, Zidane will get a break to at least start two natural centre-backs on Saturday.
