Cristiano Ronaldo: "I got injured in the moment I scored the goal, just when I was going to put the foot on the ground. I didn't want to force it because there are very important matches coming up and that's why I immediatly asked for substitution."
Then came a preocupating statement. Cristiano Ronaldo: "I don't think I'll be able to play this Sunday against Racing Santander." Let's wait for tomorrow news and more detailed medical reports and hope nothing serious comes from this "small" injury.
