Marcelo trains with Real Madrid as Mendy makes shock return

Real Madrid welcomed back Marcelo to training on Friday, with the Brazilian participating in the group session despite missing out on Thursday’s match due to some discomfort.

However, the big shock was the presence of Ferland Mendy. The Frenchman was said to be out for the rest of the season, and possibly the European Championship too, due to shin splints but he took part in the start of the session while also doing some exercises with the ball.

Mendy is not expected to play for Los Blancos again this season and Marcelo should be in the squad for Sunday’s game against Athletic Club, but Zinedine Zidane’s squad announcement on Saturday will confirm the Brazilian’s condition.

What does seem certain is that Miguel Gutierrez will enter the squad list again, and with a good chance of starting after his impressive display against Granada.
