Ronaldo reported the injury in the aftermath of Portugal´s Euro 2008 exit and suggested he would fly back to Manchester for an operation but the 23-year-old did not return as United medical staff felt a period of rest, which Ronaldo was due anyway, was a better course of action.
"Manchester United medical staff met with the medical team from the Portuguese FA and Cristiano Ronaldo in Lisbon regarding the ongoing treatment of his injured right ankle," said a statement released by United. "As a result, further specialist advice is being sought and an announcement will be made on any action in due course."
