Carvajal given medical “Green Light” for Madrid derby.

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal could make a full return to fitness against Atletico in the Madrid derby this Saturday, just six weeks after contracting a condition he says he feared could have ended his career.The 25 year old was diagnosed with a viral pericardium infection in September and hasn’t played since. He spoke to Spanish newspaper AS, and conceded the initial news left him wondering if he’d have to retire.“[You think,] ‘Imagine if it’s more serious’; you even start to consider the possibility that it could become something chronic and that you’ll have to give up playing, given that there have been other such cases. But throughout, the doctors told me not to worry, that it [the infection] is common and that I should be relaxed.”Asked for his current status ahead of Saturday’s trip to Atleti, Carvajal said: “In principle, I have the medical all-clear to play, so I shouldn’t have any problems.”It was suggested Carvajal could have made an even earlier recovery from the illness, and while those hopes were wide of the mark, manager Zinedine Zidane described his joy to have the player back.Both rivals sit on 23 points apiece heading into Saturday’s showdown at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, eight points off leaders Barcelona, meaning while it may only be November, each team will view this as a six-pointer.
