Real Madrid's Zidane elaborates on Ronaldo ankle injury

Real Madrid's Zidane elaborates on Ronaldo ankle injury

REAL Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says Cristiano Ronaldo will have recovered from his ankle injury in time to face Liverpool in the Champions League final later this month.

Having already clinched the Club World Cup and Supercopa de Espana, "Zizou" will be looking to add a third piece of silverware to his trophy cabinet this season in an effort to compensate for an abysmal league campaign - with Los Blancos now third and 18 points off Barcelona. Neither side could get a victor, meaning that Barcelona are only three games away from going the entire La Liga season unbeaten.

Real visit Sevilla in La Liga on Wednesday but with the title race settled and their place in the top four safe, the key now is to avoid any further injury scares. Real Madrid had the chance of signing the then 16-year-old 12 years ago but decided against paying just 60 thousand euros for him.

It turns out that Ronaldo's lack of celebration was due to the ill health of his former manager and mentor Sir Alex Ferguson. When later asked, he admitted the fact by saying that how can he celebrate a goal when the person who taught him football was in Hospital. He added that Ronaldo is so determined that he will surely play the Final match.

It happened four days after the arrests of three Islamic militants who planned to attack the headquarters and other police stations in the same town.

Already, Liverpool have given up the hope of Emre Can playing again this season in the Premier League, but the Reds need his service in the midfield against star studded Real Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco and Dani Carvajal all missed out through injury, Gareth Bale was suspended and Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Keylor Navas and Marcelo were rested.

"I like the basic structure of Brazil a great deal, their tactics and mentality", he said. It is a game of execution of plans both teams make.

AS have also claimed that ex-Madrid and Brazil forward Ronaldo, who now does some ambassadorial work for Los Blancos club, was working as an intermediary in the negotiations.
