Injuries continue to haunt Arda Güler, Real Madrid's new player, after suffering a setback that could keep him out of action again.
Güler joined Real last summer, but was soon injured in August, and after recovering from it he relapsed with a new injury that kept him out until November.
Finally, the Turkish star managed to be in the Real squad in the match against Sporting Braga and before that in the match against Rayo Vallecano, but he did not participate and remained on the bench.
While everything was suggesting he would feature in Valencia's next game before the international break, the 18-year-old suffered another sudden injury.
According to the newspaper "Marca", Güler suffered a setback in his muscle injury and did not participate in Real Madrid training on Friday, and it was confirmed that he missed the Valencia match.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti later confirmed the injury by saying: "Unfortunately this happened, there was nothing before the Braga game, but he is still upset."
"Nothing serious but the player is frustrated because he wanted to play, it's a small setback and not a return to the new injury."
"The first injury was a meniscus tear, he had surgery, and as often happens, he changes position on the other leg and it may happen that during recovery he may have muscle problems, and that's what happened to him."
"His future is beautiful, beautiful. He's a very talented player, I can understand that the player is disappointed, but it's just a muscle problem. I have a personal experience where I stopped for two years when I was 21 and then I came back."
"Güler's future is not in doubt, we will take advantage of the international break to recover and return to action soon."
It is noteworthy that Güler has not yet participated in any official match with Real Madrid, who joined him for 15 million euros from Fenerbahçe last summer after a big rivalry with Barcelona.
