It has been a lousy day of Real Madrid news as manager Zinedine Zidane has tested positive for Covid-19, but the club have now confirmed a new player injury too.
It seems that Real Madrid is going through hard times. A few hours ago, it was announced that Zidane's corona test was positive, and now it has been revealed thatFede Valverde
will not be able to accompany the team due to injury.
The club has officially announced that central midfielder Fede Valverde has suffered a muscle injury in his right leg and will be sidelined for an indefinite period.
Valverde's injury's exact duration is not yet known, but what is certain is that he will not play against Alves.
The Uruguayan midfielder of Real Madrid had already suffered an injury in November and has only played in three matches since then.
The 22-year-old played in 30 games last season but has only played in 12 games this year and has not played in any league games in the past month.
Zidane seems to be more accepting of the triangle of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric this season.
