Ronaldo injury misery continues

Cristiano Ronaldo
Ronaldo suffered further ankle damage against Hungary in October

Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo is to consult his former specialist in the Netherlands after his ankle injury failed to show signs of improvement.

The £80m signing from Manchester United first sustained the problem to his right ankle in September and aggravated it playing for Portugal on 10 October.

He will now see Professor Niek van Dyjk who treated the same ankle in 2008.

"He cannot train and must continue treatment and relief work until another examination is made," Real explained.

Early diagnosis of Ronaldo's injury suggested he would be sidelined for between three and four weeks.

Instead the 24-year-old, who scored nine goals in helping Real win each of their opening seven competitive matches this season, has missed his team's last seven games, only two of which have been won.
