Luka Modric Set to Miss Copa del Rey Final and Man City Clash : Luka Modric suffered a muscle injury in the left thigh and was taken off on Tuesday April 25th during the defeat of Real Madrid against Girona by 4-2 but the midfield maestro is set to miss important games.
Luka Modrić is very sad. He was disappointed and disconsolate after the medical tests because he knows he will miss some key games as the season nears the end.
The Croatian midfielder is uncertain for the Copa del Rey final against Osasuna on May 6th and the first leg of the Champions League semi-final three days later against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
This is a hard blow for Real Madrid and Luka Modric. The Madrid club announced on Friday that the Croatian international midfielder is suffering from a muscle injury in his left thigh.
The 2018 Ballon d’Or should be unavailable for around ten days according to the Spanish press.
“After the examinations passed by our player Luka Modric, a lesion on the posterior surface of the left thigh was detected”, indicated by Real Madrid in a press release about their 37-year-old player, without specifying the duration of absence of the midfielder.
Modric was replaced by Aurélien Tchouaméni in the 63rd minute of the game against Girona which La Casa Blanca lost by 4-2. On the bench, he applied ice to his left thigh until the final whistle.
On 27 August 2012, Real Madrid announced they had agreed on a deal with Tottenham for an approximate £30 million transfer fee. Modrić signed a five-year contract with the Spanish club. Two days later, he made his Real Madrid debut against Barcelona in the second leg final of the 2012 Supercopa de España at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, replacing Mesut Özil in the 83rd minute.
Madrid won the match, giving Modrić his first trophy with the club 36 hours after his signing was announced.
The intelligent midfielder has since appeared in 480 games scoring 37 goals for Real Madrid and he is close to extending his contract until June 2024.
