Milan striker Ronaldo’s return to action following a thigh injury has been delayed yet again.
The Brazilian has yet to play this season after picking up a niggling problem at the end of July.
He had hoped to be back this month, but has asked for patience while he completes his recovery.
Ronaldo, though, insists he will be fit to play a part in the Fifa Club World Cup in Japan in December.
“I ask for patience from everybody,” Ronaldo told Sky Italia.
“The first person who wants to get back playing is me, but I cannot hurry.
“Anyway, Tokyo, I’ll be there.”
