Cristiano Ronaldo plans return vs. Osasuna after knee injury
Cristiano Ronaldo believes he is fit and ready to return from a knee injury that he sustained in the Euro 2016 final as Real Madrid plays Osasuna on Saturday.
“I am fine, I am going to play,” Ronaldo told Futbol.as.
Ronaldo has been sidelined since July's injury, which occurred in Portugal's 1–0 win over France as French midfielder Dimitri Payet collided with Ronaldo in the ninth minute of the game.
Ronaldo missed the UEFA Super Cup and first two games of the season. Real Madrid still managed to win against Real Sociedad and Celta Vigo.
Manager Zinedine Zidane is expected to use Ronaldo on a limited basis.
