Setback for Tchouameni: Uncertain Champions League Final Participation and Euros Spot in Jeopardy

In the upcoming Champions League final, Real Madrid’s Aurelien Tchouameni will be sidelined due to a foot injury. This setback raises concerns about his availability for the Euros tournament.

Tchouameni, aged 24, has been a key player for Madrid this season, making 38 appearances before suffering a stress fracture in the Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich. The midfielder’s absence is a blow to the team ahead of the final against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on June 1.

Real Madrid’s coach, Carlo Ancelotti, acknowledged the severity of Tchouameni’s injury and stated that he won’t be fit for the Champions League final but might have a chance to recover in time for the Euros. Meanwhile, France’s manager, Didier Deschamps, included Tchouameni in the squad for Euro 2024, which kicks off on June 14.

In other news, Madrid fans will have the opportunity to bid farewell to Toni Kroos in the team’s final LaLiga match against Real Betis. Kroos, a 34-year-old veteran player, will retire after Euro 2024, ending a successful career that included four Champions League titles with Madrid.

Ancelotti praised Kroos for his decision to retire and emphasized the need to honor his contribution to the team properly. Despite the challenge of replacing a player of Kroos’s caliber, Ancelotti expressed confidence in the younger members of the squad to step up and continue the legacy set by the departing midfielder.
