Sergio Ramos Suffers Calf Injury, And To Be Out Of Liverpool's Clash.

Real Madrid have confirmed that captain Sergio Ramos would be out of football action for the next four weeks due to injury.

The Spanish defender sustained a calf injury after coming on as a substitute in Spain’s World Cup qualifying 3-1 win against Kosovo on Wednesday night. 

This means that he is expected to miss the both legs of the Champions League quarter-final clash against Liverpool, and the El Clasico against Barcelona the following Saturday.

Real Madrid in a statement said: "After the tests carried out (on Thursday) on our captain Sergio Ramos by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he was diagnosed with a muscle injury in the internal twin of his left leg. His recovery will be monitored.”

Sergio Ramos '35' further went on to lament about his present predicament on his Instagram page; “The truth is that I have had a pretty tough few weeks,” 

“An intervention is always a sporting and emotional break. Luckily, for a few days now I have been feeling better, but in football as in life, bad luck also plays a role.

“Yesterday, after the game, I was training on the pitch and I noticed a sharp muscular pain in my left calf. Today I have been tested and it has been confirmed that I have a muscle injury.

“If there is something that hurts me, it is not being able to help the team in these highly demanding matches in which we play the season and also not being able to return the love and energy that you transmit to me on the pitch.

“I can’t do anything but speak frankly, work hard and cheer on the team with my soul.”

Ramos has made 20 appearances for Zinedine Zidane's side this season, scoring 4 goals. His last appearance was in their 3-1 win against Atalanta in the last-16 second-leg clash, with Ramos scoring the second goal of the game from the penalty spot.

The games against the 2019 UCL champions Liverpool, was set to rekindle the feud between Ramos and Mohamed Salah, who dislocated his shoulder after arguably smart tackle from Sergio Ramos during their Champions League final clash in 2018 which the Los Blancos emerged champions after a 3-1 win.

Salah was forced out of the match later in the first half and the incident prompted heated reaction on social media from fans of both teams.
