Sergio Ramos reveals calf injury which is set to see him MISS Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool and reunion with Mohamed Salah… with Real Madrid captain picking up muscle problem on international duty with Spain
Sergio Ramos revealed he has picked up a calf injury whilst on international duty and the Real Madrid captain looks set to miss the Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool.
The 35-year-old featured for Spain against Kosovo on Wednesday but in an emotional Instagram post today, Ramos revealed he had picked up a problem in his left calf.
Reports coming out from Spain indicate Ramos will be out for a month, meaning he won’t be available for Zinedine Zidane as they take on Liverpool in the last-eight, with the first-leg taking place next week.

Ramos began: ‘The truth is that I have been a pretty tough few weeks. An intervention is always a sporting and emotional break. Luckily, for a few days now I have been feeling better, but in football as in life, bad luck also plays a role.
‘Yesterday, after the game, I was training on the pitch and I noticed a puncture in my left calf. Today I have been tested and it has been confirmed that I have a muscle injury.
‘If there is something that hurts me, it is not being able to help the team in these highly demanding matches in which we play the season and also not being able to return the love and energy that you transmit to me on the pitch.
‘I can’t do anything but speak frankly, work hard and cheer on the team with my soul.’
Ramos famously was involved in Mohamed Salah’s injury in the 2018 Champions League final against Liverpool, which saw the Reds’ star man leave the pitch in the first-half in tears with a shoulder problem.
