PSG concern rises as Sergio Ramos return in doubt again

Paris Saint-Germain had confirmed Sergio Ramos is expected to rejoin first-team training this week following an injury lay-off, but that change has been held up again, causing some concern around the club.

Ramos' PSG return remains unclear

The Andalusian center-back signed for two seasons with the Parisians, but his ongoing injuries could be a problem for them. According to Le Parisien, there is no certainty as to when he will return to training with the rest of his teammates, as the calf discomfort persists, and he trained alone again on Tuesday.

Sergio Ramos' physical problems are affecting him personally. According to Antón Meana on Spanish sports show El Larguero, it's a worrying situation.

“20 November still seems too soon to me. Hopefully he will return and be the marshal of the PSG backline. But the information I have is that Ramos is not well.

“Sergio's recovery is not going well, it's not going badly either, but it's not going well. It is slow. He still has calf discomfort. PSG know he’s not great.

“The most important thing is not when Ramos makes his debut, which could still be this weekend, but about Ramos being a starter at PSG and playing regularly, and that's a long way off. No one in Paris can say that from 20 November or 1 December he will play regularly. There are many doubts about Ramos' injury.

Ramos emotional state affected

“It is affecting him a little bit emotionally because Ramos has always been a person who had control of his body and this is beyond him. The real concern Sergio Ramos has is because his leg is not responding and because there is no clear date for him to return. I have serious doubts that we will see him in the short term as a starter at PSG.”

"What's holding him back is whether it's just the calf or if he has something else. Well-informed sources do not have any medical certainty to be optimistic. They are hopeful that Ramos will play again. There is lots of concern because Sergio's leg does has not responded and he is feeling down.”

Since signing for PSG in July, Ramos has yet to make his debut for his new club. He suffered a knee injury at the end of that month and, in August, he suffered a calf injury that has kept him sidelined to date. The last game he played was on 5 May against Chelsea and all indications are that he will not play either on Friday against Lille or against Leipzig next Wednesday.
