Ronaldo out by Friday

Three-time former footballer of the year Ronaldo should be able to leave clinic end of the week.

Medical staff in Paris say three-time former world footballer of the year Ronaldo should be able to leave the clinic which operated on his left knee by the end of the week.

The 31-year-old AC Milan striker last Thursday underwent surgery at the Pitie-Salpetriere hospital in Paris on the tendon ruptured in his club's 1-1 draw against Livorno at the San Siro the day before.

And a medical official told AFP on Wednesday: "He won't be leaving on Thursday, it's more likely to be Friday."

Ronaldo is due to remain in Paris for physiotherapy for another 10 days before returning to Milan to continue treatment.
