Real Madrid fans need not worry that the star forward will not make it to the Champions League this Saturday, as Cristiano Ronaldo already said that he is okay.

Skysports reported that Cristinao Ronaldo limping out of training session Tuesday has created fear for Real Madrid fans as the Champions League final is just a few days away.

Ronaldo reportedly left training session after collapsing on the floor while racing for the ball against reserve goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

Other members of the club’s medical staff aided the star in getting up, and the star forward limped out of the pitch without any help. The player left the training session while it was still in progress and threw a bottle in anger, CNN reported.

The player, however, eased injury concerns after the training session and insisted that his limp was just because of a dead leg.

Cristiano Ronaldo said, “I am fine. I had a little problem in training, a dead leg as they say here, but tomorrow [Wednesday] or the next day I will be fine. It was a minor scare, a knock.”

Before this most recent injury issue, coach Zinedine Zidane claimed that Ronaldo is in good condition to play in the Champions League final. This is despite a thigh problem that the star is persistently experiencing.

Cristiano Ronaldo also believes that he is in his best physical condition ever saying, “I believe I’m in better shape. I’ve had a slight problem but it’s normal as I have been the most used player in the team. I think this is the season where I have played the most minutes. Besides the problem of today’s training session, I believe I’m at my best level.”

The club is already without defender Raphael Varance because of a thigh problem. Coach Zidane says that Varane’s condition is not so serious but he will not make it on Saturday for the Champions League and would be back after two to three weeks.
