Tthe physical state Sergio Ramos has become the main topic of conversation in France, as the veteran cannot perform to the best of his ability in Paris Saint Germain due to his constant calf problems.
Spaniard in doubt Champions League draw against his former club real Madrid due to a calf injury, and pundits doubt whether he will or should play.
“Injuries… the end of Ramos?” was the Le Parisien headline on Thursday, hinting that he has only played 284 minutes for PSG this season.
Jean-Marcel Ferré, former doctor for the French national team, called Ramos’ injury “the old soleus syndrome.”
“These are very nasty injuries because you can never predict their progression,” he said.
“It has to do with the configuration of the soleus muscle. Without getting into anatomical details, the aging muscles and the impact Ramos received during his career after 19 seasons at the top level have weakened his joints,” I explained.
The doctor notes that the tissues gradually lose their flexibility and become more fragile.
Ferret believes that he is unlikely to have time to return to the game against real Madrid February 15 in Parc des Princesand believes that he is doubtful about the meeting on March 9 in Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
