Zidane has reached breaking point with Real Madrid's injury crisis

Real Madrid have been on red alert over injuries for two weeks now. The number of injured players could derail the club’s season, which has led to Zinedine Zidane speaking out and the club opening an investigation into the matter.

The club have had 41 injuries this season, with 20 players in the treatment room, totalling 823 days, or 146 matches that have been missed.

It all started on December 23 when Real Madrid went into the game against Granada with only Luka Modric missing. Rodrygo Goes limped off during this match and it started a snowball effect of crocked players, and it reached a record of nine players missing when Karim Benzema dropped out on Friday.

When injuries are compared to their rivals, the numbers don’t make for pleasant reading for Los Blancos. Atletico Madrid have had 16 this season, Barcelona 25 and Sevilla 18. Real Madrid have had 40, the most in LaLiga Santander, in the same time frame with three months of competition left. They also suffered 55 last term and 50 in the 2018/19 season.

First-team fitness coach Gregory Dupont, who organises the team’s training and recovery schedules, is the subject of a lot of scrutiny following the high number of players missing out this campaign.

Doctor Ripoll from the FIFA Ripoll Clinic of Excellence and the De Prado Sports has spoken of how technology could help avoid high numbers of injuries like this especially with the high number of games at times due to the pandemic.

“There’s a big technological revolution coming in terms of what teams use to prevent and treat injuries,” said Ripoll.

“High precision biomechanical labs provide objective information about injuries and is something that should be used with every player to avoid recurring problems.”
