Ramos has been experiencing problems with his left shoulder for the last two months. The Spanish player has been able to feature every now and then thanks to painkilling injections but was forced to leave Sunday's match against Sevilla after injuring that shoulder again while scoring Real's opening goal.
Real's captain might finally need to have surgery on that shoulder to put an end to his injury, according to Marca. That surgery would keep him out for 5 weeks, so Ramos doesn't want to explore that possibility before the upcoming Clásico against FC Barcelona. The defender would like to feature through pain in that match, and knowing how important his presence would be for his team Benítez might as well deploy him in the Starting XI.
Either way, Ramos might need that surgery sooner rather than later. If that's what it takes to get him completely ready to play, Ramos must accept that possibility.
