Real Madrid’s Rodriguez out due to muscle tear

Madrid, Sep 11 (IANS) Real Madrid Football Club midfielder James Rodriguez has been ruled out for at least a month after being diagnosed with a torn muscle in his left thigh.

The Colombia international sustained the injury during Tuesday’s international friendly against Peru in New Jersey. The tests following his return to Spain revealed the extent of the damage and the 24-year-old could well be out for three to four weeks.

“Following the tests carried out on James Rodriguez in the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital, the player has been diagnosed with a tear in his left thigh muscle, resulting from a knock he sustained during the match between Colombia and Peru. His condition will be evaluated,” a statement from the club said on Thursday.

The news completes a miserable day for Madrid on the injury front after it was announced earlier on Thursday that full-back Danilo was set for a month on the sidelines due to a foot injury.
