In the midst of the third international break of the season, injuries are wreaking havoc on Real Madrid, with one of the casualties being Eduardo Camavinga. The young French midfielder won’t see action again until 2024, delivering a blow to the already injury-ridden squad. Camavinga has broken his silence, providing insight into his journey ahead.
Real Madrid is navigating a challenging season marked by relentless injuries, with the recent setbacks to Camavinga and Vinicius leaving Carlo Ancelotti with a staggering nine players sidelined—more than a third of the squad. This international break has proven to be detrimental to Real Madrid, with both Vinicius and Camavinga set to be absent from the pitch for over two months.
The French midfielder was at the peak of his form, a undisputed starter delivering consistently impressive performances. Consequently, his injury is a devastating blow to Real Madrid’s aspirations. “Following the tests carried out today on our player Eduardo Camavinga, a rupture of the lateral external ligament in his right knee has been diagnosed. Pending evolution,” shared the club on its social media channels.
However, what remained unknown were Camavinga’s thoughts and emotional state. The Frenchman has now shared a post on his Instagram account, stating, “It’s time to rest and recover. Thanks to everyone for your messages. I’ll be back as soon as possible.” Camavinga has begun his recovery process, and the crucial takeaway is that he is mentally prepared to face the challenges ahead.
A Bitter Pill
Camavinga’s injury has cast a cold shadow over the Real Madrid faithful. The Frenchman, beloved by all, had become a vital presence in the team.
In light of this, Camavinga has taken it upon himself to ‘reassure’ the entire Madrid fanbase. Hopes are high for a swift and effective recovery, although Real Madrid is resolute in not taking any unnecessary risks.
The road to recovery for Camavinga will undoubtedly be closely followed by fans, who eagerly await the return of this cherished midfielder to the Santiago Bernabéu.
