Vinicius suffers a rupture in the biceps femoris with involvement of the distal tendon of the left leg. The Brazilian player underwent an MRI this morning that confirmed the injury that will sideline him for around two and a half months. In this way, the player says goodbye to 2023 and will almost certainly miss the Spanish Super Cup. The Real Madrid winger was injured in the game against Colombia after suffering a spectacular challenge that forced him to leave the field before half an hour of play.
The symptoms did not invite optimism and it was the player himself, in the mixed zone after the game against the café team, who raised all the alarms: “I think it’s the same injury as last time. I received a blow there and “I felt bad a little later.” It must be remembered that the injury Vinicius refers to is the one he suffered in Balados, against Celta, on August 25th, and which kept him out for a month. In this case the injury was to the leg right, and not on the left, as now.
After a first examination on Brazilian soil, doctors confirmed that the player suffered an injury to the hamstring of his left thigh. They concluded that the most pertinent thing was to return to Madrid. In the capital, the type of illness was specified after an MRI performed this morning. In this way, the player, together with Camavinga and the confirmed injury to the external lateral ligament of his right knee, joins the extensive list of casualties that Madrid have (or could have) for the next game: up to a total of 9 players. .
“Following the tests carried out today on our player Vinicius Jr. by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he was diagnosed with a rupture in the biceps femoris with involvement of the distal tendon of his left leg. Progress pending.”
