Real Madrid survive injury scare after Carlo Ancelotti provides update on Eduardo Camavinga

Eduardo Camavinga has been one of the best signings made by Real Madrid in their recent transfer history. The Frenchman has proved himself to be a very versatile player, often playing from midfield to defense, doing anything to help his team out. His heroics have led to his team winning many games and trophies, and fans now love the player.

However, the team missed Camavinga for a long time after he was injured during an international break. And it seems that many fans thought that another long injury had happened.

Carlo Ancelotti shares insight on Eduardo Camavinga injury

Yesterday saw Eduardo Camavinga play the full game against derby rivals Atletico Madrid, where he played an important part for his team. Los Blancos were 1-0 up through a Brahim Diaz strike early on and looked to be going away with all three points. But Marcos Llorente scored a last-minute equalizer to salvage a draw.

Real Madrid have already had an injury-ridden squad this season, with the defense hitting especially hard. The likes of David Alaba, Eder Militao and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois have all been injured for a long time, while Antonio Rudiger also had to sit out the game. This led to manager Carlo Ancelotti having a shortage of capable players in his defense.

Instead, he played Camavinga as the defender who played an impressive game in that position, helping to negate the aerial superiority of the Atletico strikers. But after the final whistle, it appeared that he was clutching his knee and seemed to be in much pain. This led many fans to fear another long injury, as the Frenchman had suffered another long one earlier this season.

But manager Carlo Ancelotti allayed all fears of a serious injury, assuring that it was a knock. “There’s no injury or anything serious for Eduardo Camavinga. It’s just a knock, nothing serious.”

Eduardo Camavinga returns to Madrid training

As if that was not enough for the fans to believe, Eduardo Camavinga was already seen in training. He was seen alongside his other teammates, training very normally and with no discomfort as well. This has fully assured fans that the player will be available for their next important game.

Camavinga had earlier torn his ligament in the right knee back in November during an international training camp with France. He was out for almost more than a month and quickly made his return to the pitch. The player has been vital this season, even with his injury, playing 25 games in all competitions. This explains why fans are concerned even with the slightest chance of an injury to the versatile star player.

Eduardo Camavinga will now focus on his next game with Real Madrid, which is against title contenders Girona on Saturday.
