Bad news for Rafa Benítez and the rest of Real Madrid's coaching staff. Isco had to leave Spain's training camp this morning after experiencing muscle problems, according to reports. The Spanish midfielder underwent some tests on that injury and Spain's medical staff decided to send him home to recover properly.

Nobody knows yet how long Isco will be out, but it must be a worrying injury for Spain to let him leave the camp. Isco had been a crucial player for Real Madrid ever since James Rodríguez got injured. Now that the Colombian is ready to play, Benítez will almost be forced to start James until Isco recovers from this injury.

The FIFA Virus strikes again for Real Madrid and this time before the matches are played. Something is wrong within Real Madrid's coaching/medical staff given how often the players get injured. Is this all a matter of recoveries not taken seriously enough?
