Sergio Ramos Pulls Out Of Spain Training Squad

La Liga

Udine, Italy – Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has pulled out of the Spain training squad due to an injury to his lower back.

The center-back was substituted at half-time in Thursday’s 1-1 international friendly draw with Italy after reporting “discomfort on his lumbar region,” said an official statement.

“Ramos is due to return to Spain this morning, whilst the rest of the team continues its preparation ahead of the friendly to be held against Romania in Cluj,” concluded the Spanish federation statement.

With the Clasico in just eight days, the Merengue did not want to take any chances a furthering any injury that may keep away from the pitch for that important match, though it has very little relevance in La Liga standings as Barcelona is ahead by 10 points.

Upon his arrival at the club, he will be submitted to further testings to determine the extent of his injury.
