Lucas Vázquez, a favourite of Zinedine Zidane, the ace Real Madrid winger has faced the most unfortunate of events. Having 129 appearances for the senior team in four seasons, the right winger has been the first choice when lining up the starting 11, especially in derbys. And now, he’s out for six weeks after dropping weight on his feet in the training gym, just before El Clasico!
As reported by the club officials, the Spanish international has ended up with a broken toe due to one mishap in the Valdebebas training ground gym last Wednesday.
A statement was released on the Los Blancos’ website after diagnosis, which read:
“Following the tests carried out today on our player Lucas Vazquez by the Real Madrid medical department, he has been diagnosed with a fracture to the distal phalanx in his left hallux.
“His recovery will continue to be assessed.”
Speculations are being made on the 28 year old’s recovery period, and guesses range between a month to one and a half. However, its pretty much confirmed that the Madrid youth academy graduate will miss out on the December’s derby at Camp Nou.
A youth academy graduate, Vázquez played for the Real Madrid C and B squad, and secured senior team football in 2015 after a season long loan spell at RCD Espanyol.
