Modric Adds to Real Madrid’s Injury Woes with Thigh Problem

Luka Modric has intensified the injury headache being endured by Real Madrid, with the midfielder nursing a thigh complaint.

The Blancos have been stung by a string of fitness problems in the 2019-20 campaign.

That is making selection calls testing for Zinedine Zidane, with the Frenchman unable to pick from a fully-stocked talent pool.

It could be that he is without Modric for the foreseeable future, with Real confirming that the Ballon d’Or winner is struggling with a niggling knock.

A statement released on the club’s official website read: “Following the tests carried out today on our player Luka Modric by Real Madrid’s medical department, he has been diagnosed with a muscular injury to the adductor in his right leg.

“His recovery will continue to be assessed.”

Modric has taken in two La Liga appearances for Real this season, with a red card collected in his first against Celta Vigo.

He returned to domestic action in a 2-2 draw with Villarreal, with Zidane introducing him off the bench in that contest.

The 34-year-old then headed off on international duty with Croatia.

He figured in Euro 2020 qualifiers against Slovakia and Azerbaijan, with the target found against the latter in a 1-1 stalemate.

Any hopes Real had of seeing Modric build on that effort appear to have been dashed. (Reuters)
