​Real Madrid stalwart Sergio Ramos insists he will be back playing for his beloved club in no time, having suffered a broken nose during Saturday’s Madrid derby.

Los Blancos were unable to pip their rivals to a win, playing out a 0-0 draw. But it was quite a heated affair between the two sides, and the Spain defender could not avoid leaving the pitch unscathed.

Ramos got on the wrong end of a kick from Atletico’s Lucas Hernandez as he got low in attempts to direct a header towards goal, and had to be taken to a hospital for testing thereafter, having bled heavily after receiving the blow.

It was initially thought that he would be unable to play for a few matches, but according to ​Marca, the Spaniard won’t be undergoing surgery and will be wearing a protective mask until his nose heals properly.

He is now expected to be available for the club’s matches against Malaga and Athletic club.

Following his ordeal, the player put out a tweet claiming he would be back soon, also swearing that he would “bleed for the Madrid badge and jersey 1000 times.”
