Real Madrid midfielder Michael Essien has suffered a slight injury setback, ruling him out of Sunday’s clash with Deportivo La Coruna.
The Ghana international missed the club’s final training session on Saturday evening ahead of the game.
Real Madrid’s first team squad trained at the Valdebebas in preparation for Sunday’s game against at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The only person missing was Essien, who only worked out in the gym.
The Ghanaian suffered a knock to his foot during the match against Millonarios and will definitely be out of the game against Depor.
José Mourinho led the session with all the first team players – with the exception of Essien.
The injury is thought not to be serious and Essien could return for the Champions League in midweek.
