Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos sprains knee ligaments

Germany international could be set for around two weeks out, according to reports.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos is facing a spell on the sidelines after spraining knee ligaments.

Kroos played the full 90 minutes of Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 win over Paris St Germain but is now set to miss a number of LaLiga matches.

A club statement read: “Following tests carried out on Toni Kroos by the Sanitas Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with a sprain to the exterior lateral ligament in the left knee. His recovery will continue to be assessed.”

Madrid have not said how long the Germany international is likely to be out for but reports in Spain suggest it will be for at least a fortnight.

That would potentially rule Kroos out of LaLiga matches against Real Betis, Leganes, Alaves and Espanyol.

However, he could be fit in time for the second leg against PSG on March 6, where Zinedine Zidane’s holders will defend a 3-1 lead.
