3 Min Read

5-time Balon D’or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he is in great healthy after he recently recovered from coronavirus, declaring: “Cristiano is back.”

The Juventus talisman went missing in several matches, including a Champions League fixture against Barcelona, after testing positive for the virus during the international break.

Juventus however, lost that match against Barcelona, but the Portuguese star’s return did guide the Italian champions to a victory over Spezia on Sunday.

Ronaldo netted the second and third goals in Juve’s 4-1 triumphant win, coming off the bench in the 56th minute before banging in a goal three minutes later.

The star found the back of the net from the spot in the 76th minute as he was joined by Alvaro Morata and Adrian Rabiot on the scoresheet.

Having been cleared to play on Friday, Ronaldo is glad to be back on the field, as he declared that he is officially back and ready to contribute for Juve.

“I have been stationary. I had no symptoms and I felt good. Today I went back to doing what I like: playing football,” Ronaldo told   Sky Sports.

Serie A is a competitive league. Milan are doing a great job, as well as Lazio and Napoli. We have to work hard, but we are growing.”

He added: “Cristiano is back, and this is the most important thing.”

Ronaldo previously criticised the Covid testing process, questioning the accuracy of the Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.

“PCR IS BULLSH*T”, he wrote, before eventually deleting the comment.

On Sunday, Ronaldo refused to pass a comment on his original tweet, instead looking to move on from the discussion.

“I don’t want to talk about it,” Ronaldo said. “The important thing is that I came back and we won.”

Ronaldo has scored five goals in three games this season, having fired 37 in 46 appearances last season.
