Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he will return for Real Madrid in Saturday’s Liga clash with Osasuna.
The 31-year-old has been nursing a knee injury that he picked up in the European Championship final, preventing him from playing in the European Super Cup or either of Real Madrid’s La Liga games this season.
Ronaldo suffered medial collateral ligament damage in his left leg following a challenge from France’s Dimitri Payet, and has only returned to Madrid training this week.
The Portugal captain insists he is ready to return, however, telling reporters at a promotional event: “Yes, I will play [against Osasuna].”
Los Blancos have won both of their Liga games so far this season, beating Real Sociedad and Celta Vigo.
