Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed the club will take no risks with the fitness of Ronaldo as the striker continues his slwo recovery from injury.
The Brazilan has not played this season due to an ongoing muscular problem in his leg, an injury he originally suffered on July 31.
Although reports had suggesetd that he was poised to return to action in Sunday’s match against Empoli, Ancelotti says there is no reason to rush Ronaldo’s return.
He said: “Ronaldo is working positively but it is not necessary to hurry. We will evaluate the situation together.
“When he starts to train with his team-mates and does some ball work, that would mean he is feeling okay.”
