Ronaldo To Miss Olympic Games

Portugal and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is set to miss this year’s Olympic Games to be held in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil later this year, the junior national team coach has revealed. 

Online Reporters 

Ronaldo is eligible to join his countrymen as one of three over-age players, but Rui Jorge says he has begun preparations without the 31-year-old.

One of the world’s best players, Ronaldo is set to feature at the European Championships in France next month as he continues his bid to claim an elusive major honour at international level.

But Jorge, who will take charge of the younger team in Brazil, is not holding his breath for the three-time Ballon d’Or winner.

“We do not yet know exactly about the three players over 23, we will wait, but I don’t believe Cristiano Ronaldo will be there,” he told Lance.

“We are not thinking about that. Of course he is one of the two best players in the world. Any club or country could use his contribution.”

The Olympic football tournament is scheduled to run from 3-20 August, with the 2016/17 La Liga season set to commence on the same day as the final.

“Even though the dates are not incompatible, it could produce an overload, a lack of holidays,” he added.
