Ronaldo returns to training ahead Champions League clash with Liverpool


Cristiano Ronaldo was back in action as Real Madrid trained ahead of their clash with Celta Vigo yesterday morning.

The club’s all-time record goalscorer sat out Wednesday’s defeat to Sevilla after being forced off at half-time during Sunday’s Clasico draw with Barcelona.

The forward sprained his ankle while scoring his side’s first equaliser leading to fears over his fitness for the Champions League final showdown with Liverpool on May 26.


But those fears have been allayed after Ronaldo took part in his team’s session at their Valdebebas Sport Complex on a sunny morning in Madrid.

The 33-year-old only got involved in the more relaxed portion of the session before working on his recovery in the gym for the second half.

Zinedine Zidane has insisted his star man will be fully fit by the time the Kiev clash with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool comes around.

“They are all going to arrive at the Champions League final,’ he said following Wednesday’s La Liga loss at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

“The worst is Cristiano, because it’s just happened, but he’s fine. It’s incredible that he’s already walking after 48 hours.
