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.
