Zinedine Zidane is already suffering a lack of attacking options due to his current injury list. which includes, Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, and Rodrygo.
It is now understood, further to a club statement, that the 20-year-old Spaniard, is suffering from an abdominal injury.

“His recovery will continue to be assessed.”

He managed three senior appearances for City and scored two goals before he left.

Since his arrival in at the Santiago Bernabeu, he has made 11 appearances, scoring once and adding two assists.

He has the support of his manager Zinedine Zidane, who said earlier in the preseason, he believes he the youngster will succeed in Madrid.

Zidane said, Brahim Diaz:

“I like that he always supports and uses both his feet.”

“He likes to be involved in link-up play…he is a good player, very interesting and young.”

“We will see what happens next year but at the moment, he has had minutes and has done really well.”

The player himself is happy in Madrid, saying during the preseason before his injury:

“I want to be at Madrid and I want to play at the best club in the world.
