New Atlético Madrid signing Kevin Gameiro has suffered a muscle strain just two days after beginning training with Los Rojiblancos.

Frenchman only days into Atleti career 

Gameiro completed a 32m-euro switch from Sevilla at the weekend, and Atlético's coaching team had planned to hand him his first run-out in Saturday's friendly with Italians FC Crotone.

Gameiro was unveiled to the Atlético Madrid fans on Sunday.

Grade I muscle injury

However, the Madrid-based outfit revealed on Wednesday that the 29-year-old striker has picked up a "grade I injury in the adductor of the left thigh".

Atlético added: "The player has already begun with therapy treatment for his overload and will do alternative training in the next couple of days."
