Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit to face Liverpool in the Champions League final.
Ronaldo picked up an ankle injury in the process of converting Karim Benzema’s knockdown which made it 1-1 for Madrid in Sunday’s El Clasico with Barcelona at the Nou Camp.
He was later withdrawn at the break with Gareth Bale rescuing a 2-2 draw against 10-man Barcelona following Sergie Roberto sending off.
Speaking during in his press conference on Tuesday ahead of Real Madrid’s league clash away to Sevilla on Wednesday, Zidane also hoped that Isco and Dani Carvajal would recover in time for the final on May 26.
“They are all going to arrive at the Champions League final,” Zidane said.
“The worst is Cristiano, because it’s just happened, but he’s fine.
“Isco will train with us normally and Carvajal has a little way to go, but physically he is working well.”
“It’s incredible that he’s (Ronaldo) already walking after 48 hours.
“That shows his ambition, his desire to want to play. It would be perfect if he was able to play against Villarreal (Madrid’s last game of the season).
“It’s a sprain, but there’s not damage to the fibula. The ankle is stable.”
