Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham is struggling with an ankle bruise and could be forced to sit out their weekend clash with Barcelona at Nou Camp.
“Just kicking the ball is really painful,” he reported. “I’ve had an anti-inflammatory injection and ice, but I’ll just have to give it a bit of rest and see how it is.”
“We will just have to see what the swelling is like and if goes down or not,” shrugged Beckham. “The pain is the problem.”
“I hope I’ll be able to play, though.”
