After suffering from a partial dislocation of his right shoulder against Real Sociedad, Theo Hernandez is in recovery mode and is expecting to return to football after the international break.
The left-back, who started at Anoeta, could not finish the match and has since missed four of Real Madrid’s fixtures (Real Betis, Deportivo Alaves, Borussia Dortmund and Espanyol).
The former-Atletico Madrid man is keen to get back especially with Marcelo’s injury meaning that there is a clear place for him in the team.
Hernandez will work throughout the international pause in order to be available in Los Blancos’ next meeting against Getafe in Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
That is the goal, but he will also keep Zinedine Zidane’s maxim of not forcing recoveries in mind.
Real Madrid have caught the injury bug, as Dani Carvajal, Marcelo and Theo Hernandez have all been sidelined. In fact, only Achraf Hakimi is available among the fullbacks and the French coach has used Nacho in this position in their last three games played in La Liga and Champions League.
