Rummenigge ‘hopes’ Ronaldo will be fit

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge hopes that Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit for Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final.

The Portugal international has been sidelined for the last two weeks with a muscle injury, missing the Copa del Rey final and Los Blancos’ quarter-final defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

But the Bavarian side’s board member wants the Ballon d’Or winner to be on the pitch for next week’s European Cup clash.

“I always want to ensure that the best players are on the pitch because the semi-finals are a great spectacle shown all over the world,” he told TZ.

“The other game [Atletico Madrid-Chelsea] is also good but if Real Madrid play Bayern Munich, then it is the game the whole world will be watching.

“I always wish for the best players to be on the pitch, but whether Ronaldo will be fit, I cannot say now.”
