Ronaldo looks set to be out of action for another month after Milan’s medical staff admitted to misdiagnosing the extent of the striker’s thigh injury.
The club had said the Brazilian would be fit for the start of the season after he sustained the injury at the end of July, but the Ronaldo has yet to play this season.
“We got the first diagnosis wrong,” Jean Pierre Meersseman, the head of Milan’s medical department, told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Ronaldo is now receiving treatment from the Brazilian national team doctor, Jose Luis Runco, in Rio de Janeiro.
“At the start of next week, we’ll know more, but I think he’ll be able to play in about a month,” Meersseman said.
Meersseman said that the player would return to Milan on Wednesday.
