Correa had a grade I sprain of the knee’s medial collateral ligament, according to the Rojiblancos. The player’s training session on Tuesday will involve individual work.
This morning, the Argentine international’s MRI revealed that he had sprained his knee.
With the game won and Atletico down 3-1 in the closing minutes, Bellingham made a really strong tackle that infuriated the Atletico players.
With the team’s return to training, Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa becomes the second player to sustain an injury.The Argentine’s situation is distinct, though, as he hasn’t been hurt in five years.
The last time he missed a game due to an injury was in 2014–15. This was when he had a heart procedure. He made 36 appearances in the next campaign and 47 in the 2016–17 one.
In 2017–18, Correa played in 56 games; he was suspended for one and missed two more due to technical rulings.
He played 49 games in 2018/19, missing only two. Correa was red carded and dropped by Diego Simeone. He missed three games at the start of the season after nearly joining Milan last summer. But he has missed two since.He will miss Atletico’s next match against Athletic Club for the first time in five years if injured.
