Real Madrid’s injury woes grow as key superstar is taken off against Celta Vigo

It has been a horrid start to the new campaign for Real Madrid with regard to injuries.

The Spanish capital club lost the likes of Dani Ceballos, Arda Guler, and Ferland Mendy to injuries during pre-season itself.

Days before their first game of the campaign against Athletic Club, Los Blancos saw Thibaut Courtois rupture his ACL, which will potentially keep him out for the entire season.

Early into the game against the Basque club, Eder Militao also ruptured his ACL, heaping further misery on the Merengues.

Vinicius Jr taken off vs Celta Vigo

Now, they have been dealt with yet another injury blow as superstar forward Vinicius Jr was taken off within 20 minutes in the game against Celta Vigo.

The 23-year attacker had started the game brightly, but after a dangerous run, went to the ground touching his hamstring.

Vinicius received medical attention and tried to soldier on, but could not do so for much longer and eventually asked to be substituted.

And, Carlo Ancelotti was forced to take his main man in attack off the pitch, with Joselu replacing the Brazilian in the 18th minute.

It appeared as if Vinicius had pulled his hamstring and despite his best efforts, could not continue on the pitch.

This will be a matter of great concern for Real Madrid, especially considering the fact that they do not have much quality depth when it comes to the attacking department.

As such, Ancelotti and Real Madrid will be hoping that it is nothing serious and that Vinicius recovers swiftly from what could potentially be a hamstring issue.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
