The forward will rejoin Juventus after missing the start of the Champions League and could play again this Sunday.
The wait for Cristiano Ronaldo is over. Two days after the lost duel with Lionel Messi for the Champions League, the Portuguese tested negative for the last coronavirus swab. The forward will rejoin Juventus and could play again this Sunday.
“Cristiano Ronaldo underwent a covid-19 diagnostic test. The test was negative. After 19 days, the footballer will be able to leave the isolation at home,” the Turin club reported in a statement posted on its website.
In this way, the Vecchia Signora star will be under the command of coach Andrea Pirlo, who if he deems it appropriate could make him play this Sunday (at 11) as a visitor to Spezia.
Cristiano Ronaldo tested positive on October 13, while he was in training with the Portuguese team. Subsequent tests came back positive, including the one carried out on Tuesday, on the eve of the European match against Barcelona, which the forward did not want to miss.
“I feel good and healthy. Fuerza Juve,” he had written that day on Instagram. Immediately below, in the comments, he charged strongly against the testing format that had been carried out. “PCR sucks“he wrote, and received thousands of likes and tokens of support in a matter of seconds. Then, he deleted it.
In total, CR7 did not play the games against Crotone and Verona, in Serie A, or against Dinamo Kiev and Barcelona, at the start of the Champions League.
Although he has not trained since the 12th, the forward remained physically active at home, as he showed on his Instagram account, and it is not ruled out that he may be included in the call for the imminent commitment to the local tournament.
The other possibility is that he will rest this weekend and get ready for the next Champions League game and travel to Hungary on Wednesday to face Ferencvárosi in Budapest.
