Zidane confident Ronaldo will be 150% ready for the Champions League final match against Liverpool
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has said Cristiano Ronaldo will be “be at 150%” fit for the Champions League final against Liverpool.
The Portuguese was substituted at half-time during the weekend’s draw against Barcelona when he scored the first equalizer.
“Everyone will be okay for the final – Cristiano, Isco and Carvajal,” the Frenchman confirmed on Tuesday. “Cristiano is the one who will be out longest, as it just happened two days ago. But he is good, he’s walking normally.
The 33-year-old will miss the forthcoming clash with Sevilla and is will most likely not feature against visiting Celta Vigo.
However Goal claimed he could be fit in time to face Villarreal in the last match of the current La Liga season. Zidane said: “We do not know when he will be back with the group, or if he will be back for Villarreal, but it would be perfect to have everyone ready for that final La Liga game,” he said.
The French tactician also confirmed he expects Dani Carvajal and Isco to be fit for the encounter against Liverpool on May, 26, in Kiev.
Carvajal has been on the sidelines since injuring his hamstring in the 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
The Spain international has missed Madrid’s last three matches including the second leg match against Bayern Munich and La Liga matches with Leganes and Barcelona respectively.
Similarly, Isco has also missed out with the same number games in Madrid’s last three outings because of a shoulder injury.
