Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has expressed concern over the growing list of injuries which have marred the Spanish giants’ preparations for the upcoming season.

After Marco Asensio’s horror injury which has since been confirmed to keep him out of action for at least 9 months, new acquisition Ferland Mendy also joined the injury list together with Brahim Diaz, much to the uneasiness of the French coach.

“It worries me and above all it bothers me,” Zidane said as stated by Spanish publication¬†Marca.¬†

“Marco’s [injury and then] Ferland’s, which is a minor injury, but he won’t be able to continue working and we don’t know for how long.

“These are things that happen and we will see if he comes back quickly with us,” he added.

Los Blancos face City rivals Atletico Madrid in the early hours of Saturday morning as part of their tour of the US in preparation for their 2019-20 season.
