Sergio Ramos has picked up yet another injury just a week after making his long-awaited debut for PSG and will miss the club’s clash with Lens on Saturday.
The former Madrid captain, 35, moved to the Parc Des Princes on a free transfer following an iconic 16 years at the Bernabeu.
But his move to PSG has been nothing short of calamity has his time has been spent almost entirely on the sidelines, with a calf injury that didn’t allow him to feature till last Sunday.
After completing 90 minutes in PSG’s 3-1 win away at Saint-Etienne, the Spain defender was then absent in Wednesday’s 0-0 draw at home to Nice, and the club have now confirmed he is nursing a new muscle injury.
Ramos, who is said to be undergoing a special training regime to help with the latest setback, will be hopeful to return to training on Sunday in a bid to be fit for their Tuesday’s Champions League match.
Ander Herrera is also due to start training again at the end of the week, while Julian Draxler will be back in the next two to three weeks.
But PSG remain in the dark over the extent of Neymar’s ankle injury, which he picked up in the win at Saint-Etienne.
The Brazilian is undergoing treatment at their Camp des Loges training centre and will discover how serious his problem is next week.
Ramos’ latest setback may well be the most frustrating of all for Pochettino, given he managed to complete a full game against Saint-Etienne without any major problems.
Pochettino will be hopeful Ramos’ new injury is not too serious and that he may be able to feature in their last Champions League outing on Tuesday against Brugge.
