Juventus have been left sweating on the fitness of star man Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Portuguese set to undergo tests on an ankle injury.
The former Real Madrid man picked up a knock to his left ankle during the Bianconeri’s 1-0 win over Bologna on Sunday. But concerns have grown since then, with Ronaldo unable to participate in full training with the rest of the Juve squad on Wednesday, and will now be further examined by the Serie A champions’ medical team. Fellow forward Douglas Costa also trained separately on Wednesday, with a club statement reading: “Both Douglas Costa and Cristiano Ronaldo trained seperately from the group. “For CR7, check-ups have been scheduled for today and tomorrow following a knock to his left ankle during the game against Bologna.” The injury could not come at a worse time for Massimiliano Allegri’s side as they i a crucial period in their season.
