Cristiano Ronaldo Puts On Full Kit To Send Message To Juventus Ahead Of Barcelona Clash

Cristiano Ronaldo has posted a video message to his Juventus teammates ahead of the game against Barcelona tonight.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has been denied a dream reunion with rival Lionel Messi after testing positive for COVID-19 for a third time.

However, Ronaldo still went and put his Bianconeri kit on to support his colleagues for the Champions League group stage clash.

CR7 took to Twitter to share a video of him on the treadmill at his home, before he did his trademark "SIUUUU" celebration and gave a rallying cry to Juve.

Ronaldo contracted coronavirus while on national team duty with Portugal but is said to have not yet developed any symptoms.

Today, he vented his frustration with the situation on Instagram. Posting a picture with the caption: "Feeling good and healthy! Forza Juve!" - he then replied to his own message: "PCR is bull***t" before the comment was later removed.

Cristiano Ronaldo Could Still Face Barcelona And Lionel Messi Despite Second Positive Coronavirus Test

published ata month ago

Ronaldo has been involved in a war of words with Italy's sports minister, who branded him "arrogant" after he flew straight back from international duty so he could isolate at home in Turin.

The 35-year-old responded, saying: "I followed all the protocols and I will continue to follow them, my conscience is clear... Everything I did was authorised.

"We did everything the right way - leaving the [Portugal] team, in the air ambulance, arriving in Turin... I did not have contact with anyone."

A day before Juventus' visit of Barca, the Blaugrana had a subtle dig at Ronaldo on social media - leading to an exchange between the two clubs.

Barcelona welcome Juventus in the reverse fixture on 8 December, with fans hoping a Ronaldo-Messi showdown does happen.
