Cristiano Ronaldo’s past few months has seen the Portuguese winger going through some highs and lows as he lifted the Champions League and the Copa del Rey titles with Real Madrid in what was a fairly impressive and successful season that had Carlo Ancelotti going through his debut season in charge of the Spanish club.
The star of Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo later went on turning into the savior for Portugal as he secured a hat-trick during their World Cup qualification match against Sweden. The former Manchester United player made a stunning performance which ensured Portugal’s spot in Brazil as they sneaked a spot in the group stages of the worldwide tournament.
Unfortunately for C.Ronaldo, that would be his last noticeable performance for Portugal as he failed to step up and continue pushing his country any further than the group stages after losing against Germany and only managing to pick up a draw against USA.
Now that Portugal has been knocked out of the 2014 World Cup, C.Ronaldo is enjoying his free time in Brazil before having to kick-off his pre-season schedule with Real Madrid as the Spanish club is looking to sign a few players during the summer transfer window including Luis Suarez which can help Real Madrid on their upcoming journey of snatching the Spanish league title away from Athletic Madrid as well as retaining their Champions League silverware.
The task of signing of Luis Suarez will be a difficult one however as Barcelona is also interested in signing the Uruguayan attacker from Liverpool and the price tag of Suarez is reaching the €80 million mark.
Suarez has been one of the main attacking powerhouses for Uruguay in the 2014 World Cup and even despite his recent behavior incidents; clubs are still interested in signing him and adding him into their squads.
Petr Cech, Gareth Bale, Isco, Ricardo Kaka, Carlos Tevez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are just some of the high-profile and talented players that will not be participating in the 2014 World Cup either because their respective nations did not manage on qualifying or because they were not named in the list of their nations coaches such as Carlos Tevez.
The latest player who might be joining that list is Cristiano Ronaldo as the Portuguese attacker had to make an early exit from a training session he had with Portugal. The Real Madrid left the training grounds with an ice pack over his left knee as he seemed to be pain and concerned about how serious it might be.
His countryman Joao Moutinho did reveal however that there is nothing to be worried about as he stated that C.Ronaldo has been training with the rest of the team and the ice pack is something that other players in the squad also utilize on regular occasions.
“Ever since he started to train with us he has been 100 percent like the rest of us. Everything is fine with him but there is some caution, not only with him. Today many other players were using ice as well. There is nothing to worry about. The ice is normal after training.” Moutinho revealed.
Ever since Real Madrid played their Champions League finals match against Athletic Madrid, C.Ronaldo has been struggling trying to stay in his peak condition and questions were being raised as to whether or not the Real Madrid star should have even been included in the list of Paulo Bento as one of the players to represent Portugal in the 2014 World Cup.
Portugal first World Cup match is scheduled to be played on June 16 as they face off against Germany.
