Leganes vs Real Madrid: Zidane gives updates on injuries to Kroos, Marcelo, Modric

Posted on Feb 21 2018 - 8:29am by admin

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has said he remains positive about the fitness of Toni Kroos, Marcelo and Luka Modric, ahead of the second leg of the Champions League round-of-16 tie at Paris Saint-Germain.

The three players were available for Real’s 3-1 win in the first leg.

But Kroos picked up a knee problem during that game, Marcelo tweaked a hamstring in the 5-3 La Liga win at Real Betis on Sunday and Modric has now also been ruled out of Wednesday’s trip to Leganes with another hamstring issue.

“Modric has felt a hamstring issue,” Zidane said at a news conference on Tuesday.

“He has not trained today. It is not so big [a problem], and as always, I have faith in the staff here, the physios and doctors. I am always positive. I do not like to see today that we have three or four players out injured, but that is what we have now. I hope they are not out too long, but we will see. I hope it is short.”

Madrid will play five league games in the 20 days between the European games against PSG.
