Keylor Navas joins Mariano, Llorente, Javi Sánchez, Vallejo, Kroos, Bale, Courtois and Benzema, who in this month of January have passed through the infirmary of Real Madrid. In the club they watch with surprise and weigh the list of casualties, which begins to be larger than the high one. The goalkeeper, fundamental in Villamarín and against Leganes in the Cup, suffers an injury to the adductor of the right leg and will not be against Sevilla. Luckily for Solari, Courtois has recovered in time, because the coach has been about, after the departure of Kiko Casilla, to be without goalkeepers after being all season with three.
"With regard to injuries and inconveniences we intend to recover the players as soon as possible so that we can choose the team that is most competitive," said Solari at the press conference before the match against Sevilla. Since Lopetegui was fired, the physical work was left to Pintus and the plan was for the squad to recover its tone for February, when the Champions League is played, again the main objective of Madrid. But the return of the Christmas holidays has not sat well in the squad, which, or it costs to maintain the pace of training without injury or is that bad luck pursues the club. Still, optimism is not lost. It is expected that physically the team is well in the decisive moment and that the injuries of now are only a product of the physical effort of this moment, which then reduces the number of fallen. "Hopefully we can get one back as soon as possible, it would be good for the club, now we have to look for solutions to plant competition, that sharpens the wit, in adversity it is where the character is seen." Hopefully we can recover someone as soon as possible. It would be good for the club, now it is necessary to find solutions to plant competition, which sharpens the ingenuity, in the adversities is where the character is seen, "continued Solari, who tries to weather the injury time as best he can.
Many are muscular and other products of bad luck, such as Benzema's finger. The striker will play against Sevilla with his bandaged hand and will not pose for the operating room. It is not necessary and Madrid can not afford to face the match against Sevilla and the Cup against Girona without their best footballer. "He has a finger injury and we think it is not a problem for him to develop his work as a footballer, I saw him well and happy that he is with us again. It is certainly our reference in attack and is playing very well. It helps us a lot. He is very generous in his football and in his delivery. We are happy that he is with us this weekend and that he will not go any further. "
