Cristiano Ronaldo is not going to have the chance to reunite with Lionel Messi attributable to harm, Al-Nassr coach Luis Castro stated on Wednesday.
Ronaldo is recovering from a calf harm and won’t be able to play within the gala match between Al-Nassr and Inter Miami in Riyadh on Thursday.
“Cristiano is within the last levels of his restoration earlier than becoming a member of the staff. We consider that he’ll begin working with the staff within the coming days. So it’s apparent that he can be absent for the match (in opposition to Inter Miami) ,” Castro stated at a press convention.
Messi and Ronaldo have been long-time rivals once they performed in Spain – for FC Barcelona and Actual Madrid respectively – and collectively have received 13 of the final 15 Ballons d’Or awarded to the world’s finest participant.
The ultimate episode of this rivalry was thought of the spotlight of Miami’s preseason tour, which included two matches in Saudi Arabia. However that prospect was thrown into doubt when Ronaldo suffered an harm, prompting Al-Nassr to postpone two gala matches in China this month.
