Real Madrid have confirmed an injury to midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

Tchouameni was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot after playing 90 minutes in the weekend’s Clasico, with reports claiming that the Frenchman could miss 12 months of action.

Reports had claimed that Tchouameni got injured after a tackle he received from Gavi in the second half.

The Barcelona midfielder caught Tchouameni on the foot and left him limping, which has now angered the Madrid faithful.

Tchouameni has however claimed that he didn’t get injured by Tchouameni.

In response to the footage, Tchouameni wrote on social media: “It’s not Gavi’s fault. I was injured at the end of the first half.”

Tchouameni has been Carlo Ancelotti’s first choice in the anchorman role, and Eduardo Camavinga may now take over the duties in his absence, as Carlo Ancelotti continues to play a diamond 4-4-2 system.
