Zinedine Zidane shared his condolences for Carvajal before admitting that he ‘does not understand’ injury crisis at Real Madrid.
He said: ‘I’m sorry for Carva. He played 25 minutes very well and I’m upset because he’s very important to us.
‘But I can’t explain the reasoning [behind the injury problems] to you. As a coach, having injuries is the worst. They’ve come back to hurt us again.
‘I only hope that [Carvajal’s injury] is a small one. We’ll see what the injury is and for how long he’ll be out for.’
