Bento: Ronaldo will be fit for WC

Portugal boss Paulo Bento believes that Cristiano Ronaldo will be at peak physical fitness for the World Cup.

The Real Madrid attacker has been struggling with a number of niggling injuries in the second half of the campaign.

Muscle and knee complaints have plagued the last few months of the Blancos goalscorer’s season, but the national team Coach is confident that his captain will be okay for Brazil.

“At the moment we just need to see how things go and see what state he'll arrive in. Then we'll do the best we can to manage his condition,” he told DPA Agency.

“Los Blancos' aren't taking any risks in the final stretch of the season, but Bento promises that he didn't ask Real Madrid to give the Portuguese player a break until the final of the Champions League on May 24.

“A national Coach doesn't meddle in club matters. I like players to play, but then that depends if they are fit enough to do so.”
