RB Leipzig's Dani Olmo has given the all-clear after being substituted for the Spanish national team due to injury. "I'm fine. I will just have to take a break for a few days to recover from the problem," Olmo wrote on the platform X, formerly Twitter.
After his blow to the right knee, he was substituted in the 43rd minute in Spain's European Championship qualifier against Georgia (7-1). National coach Luis de la Fuente then nominated Ferran Torres (FC Barcelona) and Yeremy Pino (Villereal) after, because Marco Asensio (Paris Saint-Germain) also had to pass stricken for the upcoming international match this Tuesday (20.45 clock) against Cyprus.
The 25-year-old Olmo is to be examined closely after his return at the beginning of the week in Leipzig, "in order to narrow down the downtime and treatment method," the Saxon Bundesliga club announced. He scored five goals in the German Cup winner's first four competitive games and made it 3-0 (38th minute) in the interim against the Georgians on Friday night.
Leipzig face FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga next Saturday (3:30 p.m./Sky) and have their Champions League opener in Bern three days later.
