Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed the injury condition of English and Real Madrid attacking sensation Jude Bellingham, MySportDab reports.
Jude Bellingham was hit with a shoulder injury during Real Madrid’s barren draw with Rayo Vallecano in La Liga on Sunday.
The young playmaker and emerging footballing giant went down on the turf in pain, clutching on his shoulders in what appeared to have been a painful bone dislocation.
He was quickly attended to by Real Madrid medical staff on the field and was able to shrugged off the pain and continue with the game.
Bellingham played the full 90 minutes against Rayo Vallecano with the burden of the shoulder injury.
After the game, he was spotted with a huge bandage on his shoulder supposedly administered as a first aid ahead of medical examination and treatment.
Bellingham’s injury could be a big blow to Real Madrid and the fans after his stellar start to life at Santiago Bernabeu.
He has bagged 13 goals in all competitions for the club and is leading 2023 La Liga golden boot race with 10 goals.
Speaking after the game on the condition of Bellingham, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said Jude Bellingham will need further medical examination to ascertain the severity of the injury.
Ancelotti also expressed optimism of having Bellingham make the trip to Portugal for Wednesday Champions League clash against Sporting Braga.
He, however, added Bellingham will undergo medical test today for more clarity of the injury.
“Bellingham has a problem with his shoulder. He will undergo medical tests tomorrow. I hope he can play on Wednesday against Braga,” he said after Rayo Vallecano draw.
