Pepe, a month out with a tear in the soleus

Yesterday defeat against Levante in the second leg of the knockout Cup (2-0), has been expensive to Real Madrid. The club's medical services have been certified Pepe's injury today who divided up the 90 minutes of the game yesterday with Carvalho.

The magnetic resonance performed to the player in the hospital “Sanitas La Moraleja”, confirms that the central suffers a muscle tear grade II in the soleus muscle of the left leg. The estimated time of injury, will be four weeks, pending clinical outcome.

The first game he will miss will be the important league match against Villarreal,(third place) on Sunday. Nor will play, regardless of other league matches, in the Spanish Cup quarterfinals against Atlético.

It is a sensible low as Pepe has usually been the headline in the center of defense alongside his compatriot Ricardo Carvalho, but Raul Albiol, when he has played minutes, and even Sergio Ramos, when Jose Mourinho has used in that area, and Ezequiel Garay, have worked satisfactorily.
