Real Madrid boss updates on the injury front
Spanish giants Real Madrid head coach Santiago Solari has revealed that his club is facing an injury crisis and will look to Karim Benzema to play through the pain.
Solari is calling on the striker Benzema after losing several players including midfielder Marco Asensio and Welsh winger Gareth Bale due to injuries and several players still not match fit.
“We have players with different characteristics who can play as forwards. Another thing is that they are specialists. The specialist we have is Karim,” Solari said in a press conference on the eve of the Copa del Rey clash against Leganes.
“Llorente, Kroos, Asensio, Courtois are already working in the field, however, not at the same pace as the team. We hope to have them as soon as possible,” Solari said.
“We should not focus on the lead we have over Leganes,” Solari said. “We need to … try to kill the tie off from the first minute. They are a disciplined side. They are driven, and are a real force at home.”
