Martin Odegaard was smiling on Thursday evening. He is back on the training ground after the injury. Recovery took the youngster only two weeks.
Calf injury was not good for Martin
Three weeks ago the medical team examined Martin. The player was diagnosed with calf injury, so Zizou had to make changes. Odegaard was one of the most important players for Zidane’s squad. Martin is the only player that Real Madrid signed this summer. As you may know, the youngster was playing for Real Sociedad on loan. It was not a purchasing option, Martin was just on the loan contract with Real Sociedad. So, Real Madrid returned the player.
Zidane has a big trust in Martin Odegaard. The statistics show the truth – Zidane trusted Martin with opening matches of La Liga. Norwegian player played every minute in the first five matches of the season. During the international break, Martin gave two assists to Haaland and also scored one goal. It was a good sign for Zizou. Unfortunately, after the international break Martin felt bad in calf and he was diagnosed with the injury. Along with Eden Hazard, Martin Odegaard started the recovery. Hazard already returned and played 20 minutes against Monchengladbach. Martil will work individually for the next few days.
Martin Odegaard will be back before the international break?
As you may know, another international break is coming in two weeks. Zidane wants MArtin to be fit before the international break. RUmors suggest that the medical team asked Zidane to not play Martin before the international matches. Medical team does not want to let Martin go for international matches. It’s better for the youngster to stay in Madrid and slowly recover the body.
