Just when things seemed to be getting better for Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, the French boss has been handed one more injury worry.
The Spanish giants have had their fair share of problems when it comes to injuries during the start of the season, and this complication will force Zizou to keep experimenting with his tactics, as new signing Luka Jovic picked up an injury while on international duty with Serbia.
The striker was only on the pitch for three minutes during Serbia's 4-2 loss against Portugal last Saturday, and coach Ljubisa Tumbakovic has already been told that Jovic will not be available to play due to this undisclosed problem. Nevertheless, he will not be cleared to make the trip back to Spain.
Jovic had picked up an injury during Los Blancos' preseason games, and this fresh problem highlights one more time a latent issue: the methods being used by Real Madrid's new physician might be behind all the muscular injuries picked up by the Spanish giant's footballers.
The Serbian striker was included in Zidane's starting lineup during Los Blancos' last game, and the French boss will have to wait for a miracle to see that happening again. Luckily for him, it seems that Eden Hazard is ready to make his debut this weekend...
