Cristiano Ronaldo was seen limping off the Carrington training field on Thursday, dealing another blow to Manchester United.
Ronaldo had already been ruled out of United’s FA Cup win over Aston Villa by a hip injury.
And the 36-year-old is now a major doubt for United’s Premier League match on Saturday afternoon against the same opponents.
Before driving home to continue his recovery in his own private oxygen chamber, Ronaldo is said to have been examined by medical specialists at Carrington.
By breathing pure air directly into blood plasma, the chamber assists in injury recovery by repairing any damaged tissue.
