Cristiano Ronaldo has declared he is “very fit”, despite Juventus’ insistence that he has been nursing a knee injury.
Ronaldo was brought off in each of Juve’s last two games due to an apparent problem with his knee.
However, Maurizio Sarri’s decision to substitute him against Milan was not taken well by the No 7, who allegedly left the stadium midway through the 1-0 win.
Furthermore, Portugal CT Fernando Santos and international teammate Goncalo Paciencia have since argued that their talisman is working without any problems.
“To open this news bulletin, we can give this news: the captain is well, very well,” the 34-year-old told reporters.
“Not only am I fine, but I can say that I am very fit too. The balance sheet is definitely positive. Now you can interview others!”
The Selecao will book their place at Euro 2020 with victory over Lithuania this evening.
