Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed with family before headed out for training with his Real Madrid team-mates on Tuesday morning ahead of Champions League final..
Madrid face Liverpool in the final in Kiev on Saturday, going in search of a third straight European crown, with Ronaldo key to any hopes they have of beating their English opponents following his incredible form on the continent this season.
The 35-year-old has proved his fitness after limping out of El Clasico at the beginning of the month with an ankle problem.
He missed the following two games but his appearance against Villarreal in the final game of the season allayed fears over the extent of his injury, and in finding the back of the net he provided a warning shot to Jurgen Klopp’s side that he is raring to go.
And after posing for a quick photo with his family, minus son Cristiano Jr, Ronaldo was back out going through more preparation with his colleagues.
He had earlier posted on Instagram a picture with his partner Georgina Rodriguez, his twins, Mateo and Eva, and Alana Martina, who was born last November.
Soon after posting the snap, he was out on the turf at Real Madrid City, going through drills under the watchful eye of coach Zinedine Zidane.
The Frenchman talked about his talisman, who has failed to score in the semi-final against Bayern Munich, having scored in every game previous, and warned against writing him off in the final.
‘When Ronaldo doesn’t score he doesn’t worry because he knows that he is going to score three or four goals in the next games,’ he told reporters on Tuesday morning.
‘And the more you criticise him watch out! My nature is to be calm. Does it calm me to have him in my team? Well it’s better to have Cristiano than to not have him. He’s the best and he shows it every year.’
