Real’s Alonso out for three months
21 August 2013, 16:33
Madrid - Real Madrid will be without Xabi Alonso for around three months after the veteran midfielder broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot in training on Wednesday.
Alonso, 31, was still recovering from a groin strain which required an operation in June and forced him to miss the Confederations Cup.
He missed Real's league debut against Real Betis, a late 2-1 win Sunday, and will now be out until November. It is not clear if the whites will sign a replacement for him in the summer transfer window.
