Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo insists he will be fit and ready to play in Saturday’s Champions League final against neighbour Atletico Madrid (kickoff 8.45pm).
This despite Ronaldo having limped off in training yesterday – the third time in a row the 16-goal tournament topscorer has failed to complete a session.
Ronaldo clashed with goalkeeper Kiko Casilla during the training session and, after being examined by medical staff, limped back to the changing rooms.
It means he has now failed to complete his last three training sessions, as well as being substituted at half time in Madrid’s final La Liga game against Deportivo.
But the 31-year-old claims there is nothing to worry about and that he will be fit to face Atletico Madrid in Milan.
Ronaldo, who admits that he has perhaps played a little too much this season, says his workload is being managed.
He explains: “I had a little scare… but in a couple of days I will be fine. I’ve had a little problem, but having been the most used player this season that is normal.
“I think it’s the season where I’ve played the most minutes, and taking out this problem from training I am at my best.”
