Real Madrid’s start to the new season has been flawless in terms of results, but the Galacticos are far from where they want to be in terms of quality, and playing a huge role therein, are their injury woes.

After being derailed due to an ACL injury to Thibaut Courtois, matters went from bad to worse when Eder Militao also suffered a similar fate, and young new signing Arda Guler also picking up a meniscus injury before the campaign could get going.

And then another hammer blow, as star winger Vinicius Jr also picked up a thigh injury against Celta Vigo.

There were concerns about Vini’s injury also being quite serious, which was then debunked much to everyone’s relief.

Everyone has been working hard on their recovery, and Goal Espana (h/t Madrid Xtra) report that there is a positive update with two of them.

Vini and Arda Guler back on the pitch

Having signed from Fenerbahce in the summer after being linked to rivals Barcelona as well, Guler was a signing that highly excited everyone.

Nicknamed the Turkish Messi, Guler’s silky dribbling skills and ability to unlock defences is a huge asset, as Madrid look to usher in their era of young stars.

However, his meniscus injury during preseason meant he had to be sent home from the United States, yet the problem was deemed not serious enough to warrant surgery.

It is reported that both he and Vini Jr are now taking big strides in their recovery and have returned to training on the pitch.

Highly-encouraging signs for Los Blancos right ahead of the Champions League season kicking off, as they also look to keep up the momentum in La Liga.

Former Arsenal defender Lauren Bisan-Etame, who now happens to be a FIFA technical expert, has broken down Jude Bellingham’s perfect start to his new life at Real Madrid, saying that although there is a lot of pressure on the midfielder, he seems to be thriving on it.

Bellingham has made a perfect start to his Real Madrid tenure following his €103 million from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

Despite being a midfielder, the 20-year-old has already scored six goals in seven outings across all competitions, with three of them being match-winners.

Thriving under the pressure

While speaking about Bellingham’s adaptation, Lauren said that the midfielder seems very comfortable with the pressure he has on his shoulders.

“We’ve seen so many players go to Real Madrid, and once they put that shirt on, they shrink,” Lauren explained as quoted by El Desmarque

“There is a lot of pressure that comes with the jersey and Bellingham seems comfortable with that pressure, he likes the pressure. The fact that he is such a young player with so much personality is fantastic for him,” he added.

Basic instinct

Lauren, who also worked as an Arsenal ambassador, further explained that the reason why Bellingham has scored six goals at this rate is because of his positional awareness. 

He added that the midfielder is capable of sniffing a goalscoring opportunity and the fact that he has connected so well with Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde is simply brilliant. 

“He’s already scored five goals in the league, he’s got a winning goal in the Champions League and he’s only 20 years old – it’s crazy. What I like most about him is that he has the instinct to be in the right position at the right moment and knows how to sniff out opportunities in the area.

“In addition, he has connected very well with Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde in the Real Madrid midfield,” he explained.

Lastly, the 46-year-old admitted that if he had gotten an opportunity to play for Real Madrid at 20 years of age, he wouldn’t have the courage to take the step.

“In my time as a player, young people couldn’t play for Real Madrid because they didn’t have patience. So in my time, there is no way I would have chosen Real Madrid instead of the Premier League. 

“Now it seems that Real Madrid has changed its strategy and is signing young talents from all over the world. They are mixing youngsters from Spain with youngsters from all over the world. As it is now, I would sign for Madrid, but in my time, no way!”
