Real Madrid star, Martin Odegaard has suffered a tear in the soleus of his right leg that will keep him out for about a month.
Real Madrid issued a medical report on Friday on the injury and that has been confirmed in the tests that the midfielder underwent on Monday morning.
Since his return to the club after a successful loan spell at Real Sociedad last campaign, the Norwegian has had little luck at time when he wants to prove himself as a Real Madrid player.
He arrived with knee problems that had affected him in the final stretch of last season with La Real, followed by a difficult process with the flu and now has suffered a calf injury that will keep him out of action for the best part of a month.
Odegaard started Norway’s last two matches, first against Romania (70 minutes) and then Northern Ireland (78 minutes).
Upon his return to Madrid, the first signs seemed to indicate that the problem was serious and Monday’s tests confirmed that.
