Real Madrid have confirmed captain Sergio Ramos dislocated his shoulder in Tuesday night’s win over Shakhtar Donesk.
Ramos was one of three players to pick up injuries during the 4-0 win at the Santiago Bernabeu, with Gareth Bale and Raphael Varane also picking up injuries.
Official confirmation has not yet been made regarding the other two but a statement on the club’s website said Ramos has dislocated his shoulder.
“Following the tests carried out on Sergio Ramos today in the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital, the player has been diagnosed with dislocated acromioclavicular joint in his left shoulder. His condition will be evaluated,” it read.
The news will be a blow for Los Blancos who have big games coming up against Athletic Bilbao and Atletico de Madrid in the next couple of weeks and the injury will put Ramos’ participation in doubt.
But Ramos took to social media to show fans he is thinking positively and is hoping to be back soon. He posted a picture of himself with his arm in a sling along with a message that read: “Always with a smile, whatever happens. Working hard to come back stronger.”
The fact there has been no word on Bale’s condition is concerning. Manager Rafa Benitez said it was a calf problem, an injury the 93 million euro man has suffered three times since joining Real in 2013.
