Jesús Vallejo is injured and he will miss the rest of the season, according to the medical report made public by his club, Eintracht Frankfurt. The midfielder suffers a serious injury in his knee that will prevent him to play in the next six weeks. Unfortunately for him, he will say goodbye to his supporters from the nursery room.
Eintracht Frankfurt has been suffering in the last months of the season. They were one of the best teams in the first part of the Bundesliga, but now they’ve dropped until the 10th position, far from the European spots. The team has failed to win the last 10 games of the Bundesliga.
A bad movement in the training session will prevent Jesús Vallejo to help his team in the last games of the season. According to his manager, former Bayern Munich footballer Nico Kovac, Vallejo has been one of the best defenders of the competition and one of the reasons why Eintracht Frankfurt was at the top of the table during the first months of the season.
Jesús Vallejo played 24 games in the Bundesliga this season, 22 of them in the starting line-up. These are great numbers for a 20-year-old defender who hadn’t played before in a top level club. Real Madrid signed the player from Zaragoza, in the Spanish second division for only €5M. Los Blancos scouters saw a lot of potential in the full back.
With this injury, his time in Germany has come to an end. Los Blancos want to bring Jesús Vallejo back from Frankfurt and they think it could be a similar situation that the one lived with Daniel Carvajal, who played one season on loan with Bayer Leverkusen. Pepe hasn’t renewed his contract yet and Vallejo is the first option to replace the Portuguese defender.
