Real Madrid have published a medical report on Vinicius, who was forced to leave the return leg of the Champions League Round of 16 against Ajax.

Following the tests carried out today on our player, Vinicius Jr., by the Real Madrid medical department, he has been diagnosed with a ligament tear of the tibiofibular joint of the right leg. His recovery will continue to be assessed.

This injury will keep Vinicius out for at least two months and he could even miss the remainder of the season, according to reports from MARCA. The young attacker will also miss the chance to make his debut with the Brazilian national team later this month. He made Tite’s squad list yet this injury will force him to wait a bit more before playing for Brazil’s first team.

Knowing that Real Madrid just have nothing to fight for this season, the coaching staff will surely wait until he’s 100% ready to come back.
