Although Rodrygo has missed 12 games due to an injury, he is now back to full fitness and ready to chase down trophies.

forward

Rodrygo

has been suffering from a hamstring problem this season and has said that he “couldn’t take it anymore”, but he is now back to full fitness and is ready to chase down trophies.

Rodrygo has told

Real Madrid TV

:

“The whole time I was away it was difficult.

“I couldn't take it anymore being without playing and watching the games on TV.

“I was even getting angry, but now I'm very happy and working every day to be better.

“The hardest thing is to catch the rhythm again and having the confidence that I had before I injured myself. The rest is easier.”

Rodrygo lasted just 38 minutes of their 2-0 win against Granda in December and was not seen again until March 1 which means he missed 12 games in all competitions.

He had also previously missed three matches during the 2019-20 season after suffering from a hamstring problem.

He has been able to make five appearances since he returned to full fitness and is looking to add to the solitary strike he recorded earlier this season in a Champions League game against Inter.

Now that Real Madrid are going to prepare themselves for a crucial run that will include important matches in an ongoing

La Liga

title defense and a game with Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the

Champions League

, he should be able to get plenty of opportunities to improve that tally.

Rodrygo added on the challenges to come:

“Everybody is seeing that we fight until the end in every match.

“Real Madrid’s badge indicated that we are going to fight until the end, no matter how many points behind Atletico or Barcelona we are, we always fight.

“Liverpool will be a very tough opponent, we’re all training hard now for what’s ahead and we’re hoping we can advance to the next round.

“Every match is important but in this moment of the season, the matches are crucial. It’s a different feeling which makes us want to play and perform well, these are special games for sure.”
