Ronaldo ankle still not recovered

MADRID - The ankle injury that has sidelined Cristiano Ronaldo for almost a month has not healed and the Real Madrid forward will seek a second opinion in the Netherlands, the La Liga club said on Wednesday.

Ronaldo aggravated the problem in Portugal's 3-0 win over Hungary on October 10 and had more tests on Wednesday that showed he is still unable to return to training, Real said on their website.

The club's world record signing will consult a specialist in the Netherlands who treated an injury to the same ankle a year and a half ago, they added.

Ronaldo is certain to miss Saturday's match at city rivals Atletico Madrid.
