Rodrygo allays injury fears after Real Madrid’s win over Napoli

Real Madrid forward Rodrygo has spoken on the back of Los Blancos’ meeting with Napoli. Real, and the Brazilian, marked their return to action on Wednesday night.

Fresh off a dominant three-goal downing of Cádiz at the weekend, Carlo Ancelotti’s troops turned their attentions towards matters on the continent, in a Champions League group stage showdown with Italian champions Napoli.

A thrilling encounter ensued, with Real having ultimately emerged on the right side of a 4-2 scoreline.

The aforementioned Rodrygo, meanwhile, was amongst the goals once more, to take his tally to a remarkable 10 direct goal contributions in his last four appearances.

In turn, it came as a major source of concern when, inside the game’s closing five minutes, the Brazilian was hooked from proceedings in evident discomfort.

Speaking to the media post-match, Rodrygo was therefore asked whether he has picked up a fresh injury problem.

The 22-year-old, though, was quick to allay any and all fears surrounding his wellbeing, assuring that he was suffering with little more than a bout of cramp:

“In the last play, I got a little cramp, but now I’m fine.”
