Sahin, who has not played a game since April 15 when he went down injured with Borussia Dortmund against Freiburg in his right knee, continues his ordeal. He trained with his new teammates two days in the sports City of Valdebebas in the previous days of the Santiago Bernabeu Trophy where was planned by Jose Mourinho his debut in the final minutes, but again has suffered a sprain in the same area of his left knee.
Mourinho (resigned) confirmed it at news conference: "The Sahin's injury is not a relapse. This injury is different", he unveiled. "Sahin is not to play, so I will not be much more specific. I leave it to the medical department. I did not expect him to play in Zaragoza, so for me is not important", he said.
The month off that Sahin must take up anew, is a setback for Mourinho, that could not call Sami Khedira by muscle problems for the Zaragoza match and has ruled Esteban Granero by technical decision. So Fabio Coentrao holds the midfield starter position alongside Xabi Alonso and now the coach do not see as a problem that the club do not sell Lass Diarra.
