Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham is an injury concern for Saturday’s El Clasico meeting with rivals Barcelona.
Beckham was hurt during training ahead of Saturday’s clash and he appears to have suffered a recurrence of his back injury.
Beckham has been warned that his unusual way of striking a ball is placing a strain on his back, but the England captain is determined to be fit for Saturday.
Although withdrawing from training, it is believed the Real Galactico showed no obvious signs of pain so it could transpire that the move was merely as a precaution.
“It’s my back but I don’t think it will be a problem,” Beckham told reporters.
