(Photo) Cristiano Ronaldo returns to training after missing Liverpool fixture

Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to training at Carrington after missing last night’s 4-0 loss to Liverpool. The 37-year-old was granted leave after suffering the tragic loss of his newborn son, who sadly passed away on Monday.

Ronaldo confirmed the news on all of his social channels and there was an outpour of support for the Portugal international, with Liverpool and Manchester United fans uniting at Anfield yesterday.

There was a minute-long round of applause dedicated to Ronaldo in the seventh minute, with all of Anfield paying their respects to United’s star man after his heartbreaking loss.

Pictures from United’s training ground have now emerged and it seems like Ronaldo has returned to training, with The Telegraph running a story on it.

As per the report, Ronaldo was granted compassionate leave for as long as he wanted but he has opted to make his way to training, as seen in the photo above.

SN’s verdict…
Manchester United’s season is all but over and Ronaldo is probably one of very few players who can hold their head up high after this disappointing campaign.

Ronaldo has scored 20+ goals in the worst Manchester United side in Premier League history and his winning mentality has shone through – despite the best efforts of his team-mates to do the complete opposite.

No pain is greater than the loss of a child so if Ronaldo would opt to take more time away from football, that would be perfectly understandable and not a single United fan would bat an eye or argue against it.

We don’t for sure if Ronaldo will be available for this weekend’s clash with Arsenal but if reports are to be trusted, we’re led to believe that any inclusion will be based on his decision.
