Drama for Real Madrid


By: Manu Tournoux

While it is undermined by injuries this season, Real Madrid could soon recover two hard-hit elements, and not the least.

This is good news for Real Madrid. On the eve of his team’s trip to Valencia, Carlo Ancelotti took stock of the state of the Merengues’ infirmary. And the Italian coach made an announcement that will delight supporters at the White House.

“What we have done so far with so many victims is something excellent, I think the team has not given up. Now I think the best is coming. We see the return of Militao and Courtois getting closer”confided Ancelotti this Friday at a press conference.

Back for the Clasico?

Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao were among the first Real Madrid players to suffer injuries this season. Both victims of a cruciate ligament rupture during the summer, the Belgian goalkeeper and the Brazilian defender were not certain of being able to play again by the end of the season. This should indeed be the case according to Ancelotti, who said more about their recovery programme.

“The date is not defined. But we have to take advantage of the international break and then the mini break of the Copa del Rey. At that time they will do tasks with the team and I believe that after April 14, after the match against Mallorca, they will be available to play., added Ancelotti. There will be a Clasico against FC Barcelona which could arrive a little early. But Real should be able to count on Courtois and Militao for the final sprint in La Liga and the Champions League.
