Jesús Vallejo went back to Real Madrid after spending one successful year on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt. The full back was signed from Zaragoza one year earlier, but he hasn’t made his debut with Los Blancos yet. He arrived in summer with the idea of replacing Pepe as the fourth full back, but the injuries have prevented it.
Now Vallejo has been called to play with the Spanish national team U-21 and he’s fully recovered from his injuries. He was on the bench in the last game in La Liga against Espanyol and he’s able to help his team mates in the next fixtures.
He’s expected to play some minutes in the next game against Slovakia, so he could gain some experience and minutes to recover the pace. Daniel Carvajal is injured and the club doesn’t know when he could be back because it’s a rare problem in the heart, so Nacho and Achraf Hakimi should be covering this important absence.
For this reason, it’s very important for Zinedine Zidane to count with Jesús Vallejo. He has a great potential and should be able to cover the eventual absences of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane. Besides, Theo Hernández and Marcelo were injured the last couple of weeks, although both should be able to be back in the next game against Getafe.
Zinedine Zidane is already training with Karim Benzema, Theo Hernández and Marcelo, so at least some key players are back with the group. The same we can say about Jesús Vallejo, who is having many problems in his career with the injuries. These problems also appeared last season in Germany, when he missed several key games for an important problem in his knee.
Although we’ve just started the season, Real Madrid are having too many injury concerns. Mateo Kovacic, Karim Benzema, Theo Hernández, Marcelo, Carvajal or Jesús Vallejo are some of the players hit with these problems.
