Juve: Ronaldo injury 'minor'

Juventus have announced that Cristiano Ronaldo picked up a ‘minor’ thigh injury while playing for Portugal.

Ronaldo’s involvement in the first leg of Juve’s Champions League quarter-final against Ajax was thrown into doubt after he hobbled off with a suspected hamstring problem during Portugal’s 1-1 draw with Serbia on Monday.

However, a medical report on Juve’s official website confirmed tests only showed ‘an apparent minor injury’ to his right thigh flexor, suggesting he should be fit in time for the trip to Amsterdam.

Although his setback does not seem to be a serious one, the No 7 will undergo more tests once he returns to Turin so his recovery time can be determined.
