Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier ruled out with shoulder sprain
Atletico Madrid have confirmed that Kieran Trippier suffered a grade III shoulder sprain in the club’s 3-3 draw with Valencia in La Liga on Sunday.
Trippier, 31, had to be taken off after just eight minutes of the game at the Mestalla stadium in Valencia.
Trippier sustained the injury after receiving a push which caused him to fall onto his left arm. The England international was then transferred to a Valencia hospital to undergo tests, which confirmed he had suffered a grade III sprain in the left acromioclavicular joint of his shoulder.
A club statement read: “The British full-back will carry out rehabilitation and physiotherapy sessions and his evolution will mark the return to training with the group.”
Trippier has featured in all of Atletico Madrid’s 12 La Liga games, starting in nine of them.
Diego Simeone’s side sit fourth in the table on 23 points, five points adrift of league leaders Real Sociedad who have a game in hand.
