Cristiano Ronaldo has missed Manchester United training again again due to the hip flexor injury that kept him out of Sunday’s loss to Manchester City.
Ronaldo missed two games in a row against Aston Villa earlier this season due to the same reason.
When the problem flared up again before the Manchester derby, the attacker travelled to Portugal and did not see his teammates suffer an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to their rivals.
United will be hoping that their leading scorer returns in time for their crucial match against Tottenham on Saturday evening. United are currently in fifth place in the Premier League rankings, but a win for Spurs, who have two games in hand, would put them one point ahead of them.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister, on the other hand, refuted the claim that he was injured. She stated that Cristiano Ronaldo was not injured and that he was fully fit, but that the coach decided to drop him for technical reasons.
Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister’s Instagram post stating Ronaldo was not hurt, many fans began to wonder why a coach would claim Ronaldo was injured when he was completely fine.
Because of the statement made by Ronaldo’s sister, numerous doubts were raised.
