Conflicting stories are emerging over the fitness of Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Spurs’ Champions League quarter-final tie against Real Madrid.
The former Manchester United player recently missed two of his side’s games before returning for the second leg of their last 16 match against Lyon. However, he limped out of the action during the weekend’s Madrid derby and will miss Portugal’s friendlies against Chile and Finland.
The Real Madrid prognosis, as shown on their website says that Ronaldo will be out for,”between two to three weeks, depending on his progress”.
That would make him, ‘touch and go’ for the first leg, but Tottenham’s Tim Sherwood, speaking on Talksport had a different opinion.
“He didn’t look like he had a hamstring problem to me. It looked like he had two friendly games for Portugal which he might want to get out of.” Sherwood said.
So make up your own mind, but personally my money’s on the Sherwood theory.
