OFFICIAL: Vinicius to Miss The Remainder of The Season
Vinicius Junior will be sidelined until the tail end of the season after Real Madrid confirmed the Brazilian teenager has torn calf ligaments in his right leg.
The reigning champions lost 4-1 on Tuesday as they were knocked out of the Champions League in the last 16.
The young attacker will also miss the chance to make his debut with the Brazilian national team later this month.
Vinicius has been a rare highlight for Madrid in a terrible season that has seen the club dismiss Julen Lopetegui, with Santiago Solari reportedly close to following suit.
Real, who had won three successive Champions League titles before this week’s exit, sit third in La Liga and are 12 points behind leaders Barcelona after their El Clasico defeat on Saturday.
