Sergio Ramos is set to miss one month of football after being injured while playing for Spain against Albania.

The Real Madrid defender has picked up an injury in the leg and will have to go through further test to assess the extent of the injury.

This will be a bad news for Real Madrid’s manager Zinedine Zidane as Ramos will be joining players such as Luka Modric, Casemiro, and Marcelo on the injury list

The first statement from the team said that the injury appears to be a sprain and that the player might be out for one month. However, further tests need to be carried out before an accurate assessment can be made.

Sergio Ramos has enjoyed a difficult start to this season where he has conceded four penalties so far for club and country. Ramos has also been the subject of harsh criticism during recent weeks as Real Madrid went on a run of four consecutive draws. However, with Real Madrid currently short on players, his absence will come at an inopportune time for Zidane as he was counting on his experienced defender at the back.

Ramos will miss three La Liga games and two Champions League game during that period. He is likely going to miss international games with Spain against Macedonia counting for the World Cup qualifiers and also a friendly match against England.

If there is no complication, it is believed that the player will be back for the derby game against Atletico Madrid on the 20th November.

Ramos said that he would do everything he can to come back strongly and to help the team challenge for trophies. He admitted that he has had a bad campaign so far and wanted things to change once he is back in the team.
