The severity of the injury is worse than initially anticipated, as the Frenchman was initially diagnosed with a sprained knee by the French federation.
However, further tests conducted by Real Madrid’s medical team have revealed a rupture of the external lateral ligament in his right knee. This unfortunate injury will keep him sidelined from the playing fields until mid-January, resulting in approximately two months without being able to play.
The injury occurred during a training session with the national team when Ousmane Dembele tripped over the ball and fell on Camavinga’s leg. Initially, it was believed that Camavinga could continue with the team, but he eventually returned to Madrid for a thorough examination.
Real Madrid is hopeful of recovering Camavinga in time for the Spanish Super Cup or the subsequent matches, which would mean an absence of eight to ten weeks. This recovery period is similar to that of Aurélien Tchouaméni, which poses a challenge for coach Carlo Ancelotti in reshaping the midfield.
