Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has revealed that midfielder Ruben de la Red will miss the rest of the season.
De la Red, 23, collapsed during Real's 3-2 Copa del Rey loss at Real Union in October with a suspected heart anomaly, although the player is still undergoing tests to determine a definitive diagnosis.
The Primera Division champions already have striker Ruud van Nistelrooy and midfielder Mahamadou Diarra sidelined for the campaign with knee injuries.
"I can't remember a situation like the one we are in right now, with three players sidelined for the entire season," Calderon told Spanish television station La Sexta.
