The medical tests to which Fede Valverde and Thibaut Courtois underwent confirmed that the Uruguayan midfielder suffers a knee sprain that will keep him away from the pitch for ten days and better news for the Belgian goalkeeper, who has not damaged his knee.
The classic left the two Real Madrid players with knee discomfort but the test result confirms that Valverde is the only one injured. He was injured in a bad fall, due to a blow suffered in a jump with Gerard Piqué that unbalanced him.
The MRI that Valverde underwent confirms that the ailment remains in a mild knee sprain and also suffers a thoracic contusion. The estimated time of withdrawal, according to sources from the club to Efe, ranges between eight and ten days depending on their daily evolution.
«Happy for the team that gave everything and we took the three of us home, but sad for the blow that left me out of the fields for a few days. Hopefully it will be as soon as possible to continue adding victories and stay at the top ”, wrote Valverde on his social networks after knowing the results of the tests.
Better news was for Thibaut Courtois, who felt severe pain in the back of his right knee when hitting long shot but was not injured. The goalkeeper was absent from Monday’s training session but will rejoin the group in Tuesday’s session to prepare for the league match against Osasuna. EFE (HN)
