A fresh update on Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has emerged on Wednesday.
Ronaldo would miss United’s last clash – their 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City – with a hip problem.
And now, the Telegraph have provided an update on the forward on Wednesday, stating that Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to sit out training again on Wednesday with the hip flexor problem that Ralf Rangnick said ruled the forward out of Sunday’s derby defeat.
It is added that CR7 has been playing with some hip pain for a number of months and it is currently unknown if he will be back for United’s clash with Tottenham this weekend.
Manchester United vs Tottenham
Manchester United will be no doubt be hoping that Ronaldo is back in time for their next clash.
The Red Devils are set to face off with Tottenham in Saturday’s late Premier League kick-off.
The tie is a huge one for both sides, with a loss likely to be very damaging in both their hunts for a top-four finish.
Manchester United were knocked off 4th spot by Arsenal on Sunday after the Gunners beat Watford and United lost to Manchester City.
The Manchester outfit are now one point behind Arsenal, but Mikel Arteta’s side do have three games in hand.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are down in 6th, but could catch Manchester United if they win their games in hand or pick up a win this weekend.
