Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has suffered an injury setback after suffering hamstring injury in training that could sideline him longer.
Bale, who stayed in Madrid during the international break as he worked his way back from an existing problem, is set to miss several games.
A statement on Real’s official website reads: “Our player Gareth Bale, who felt some discomfort in his left leg at the end of training last Thursday, has been subjected to different tests today by the Real Madrid Sanitas Medical Services.
“He has been diagnosed with a fibrillar rupture in the middle third of the adductor longus muscle of the mentioned leg. Update pending.”
