Why Benitez won’t rush back with his injured players of Real Madrid? Rafael Benitez is readied to be quiet with his injured players of Real Madrid and not surge them once again energetically.
James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos are all near full wellness yet won’t be gambled against Las Palmas on Saturday.
Goalkeeper Keylor Navas will likewise miss the match with harm yet Benitez told a news gathering he was sure his squad was sufficiently profound to permit him to manage without his harmed regulars for one more match.
Benitez side wasn’t at their worst form in a last few games without his injured players of Real Madrid.
He will, then again, be wanting to have some, or all, of them accessible when Real enthrall Paris Saint-Germain in Champions League Group An on Tuesday.
“Our priority is to do the best for Madrid and the players we have,” Benitez said. “Keylor has muscle fatigue and we are not going to risk him or any of the others who are close to returning.
“We have a lot of matches left and we believe we have the resources to tackle the next game.”
Rodriguez has not played since returning from international duty with Colombia with a thigh problem in September while Benzema damaged a hamstring playing for France, Ramos is recovering from a dislocated shoulder and Bale is coming back from a calf injury.
“All the players that have problems have recovery programmes and deadlines,” said Benitez. “They are in line with what we expected and we will not rush.
“We want the players to be fine. It makes no sense to force a situation if we don’t have to.”
Even a depleted Real should have little trouble dispatching Las Palmas, who are third from bottom and have a new coach in Quique Setien following the sacking of Paco Herrera.
“I hope we see a good match, which we can win and which the fans can enjoy,” Benitez said.
“We have to impose our quality, desire and ambition to win. It’s going to be a difficult game against a team with a new coach who will try to show his personality.”
A few injured players of Real Madrid are fit to play from the next game of La Liga.
