Cristiano Ronaldo remained in good spirits after the first leg of Real Madrid’s Champions League semi-final against Manchester City despite missing the match due to injury.
The Portugal star looked set to play having returned to training after suffering an injury against Villarreal in La Liga, but was pulled out during Madrid’s final session on Monday.
Ronaldo watched from the stands at the Etihad Stadium as his team-mates secured a 0-0 draw to take back to Spain.
Judging by the Instagram post he shared on the plane journey home with the caption “NEVER GIVE UP AND BE POSITIVE”, Ronaldo is confident of returning for the second leg and helping his side progress to the final in Milan.
