The Daily Merengue is a place where you can feel free to discuss all things football. Do not be alarmed by the overt RMCF bias. It’s in the name!
Shoutout to the mods who do a fantastic job, Valyrian Steel, Kung_Fu_Zizou, Juninho, NeRObutBlanco and yours truly, Felipejack.
Another injury for the record?
NEW: There is concern with Eduardo Camavinga's right knee after the blow he received tonight.— Madrid Xtra (@MadridXtra) February 4, 2024
It's the same knee that kept him out for almost two months and he had already been suffering from discomfort for some time. @marca pic.twitter.com/P6wn2K7E3z
Apparently, Carlo wasn’t aware what happened, but then confirmed Camavinga suffered a knock in the knee.
Carlo explained why he started Brahim instead of Joselu, who was seen warming-up:
Vinicius had a muscle contraction in the neck, he tried to warm-up, but he didn’t feel comfortable. The options were Joselu or Brahim. We have planed the game defensively in a manner and Brahim allowed us not to change this defensive system.
Carlo was also asked if the squad plan was wrong in January giving the lack of CB signing:
This was a really special game, as in one game two players who can play as CB are not available. But the emergency ended today. Next game, Rüdiger and Tchouameni will return.
