Ronaldo ‘asks for personal physio’

Cristiano Ronaldo has asked to be allowed to have a personal physio as part of his new Real Madrid contract, and Florentino Perez agreed.

AS reports Ronaldo requested the stipulation in his contract and is one of the Madrid players unhappy with the club’s medical department, headed up by Dr Jesus Olmo, who has the support of Perez despite the President agreeing to let Ronaldo have his own fitness expert.

Ronaldo has in recent times gone to Joaquin Juan, the physio of Spanish basketball star Pau Gasol, while Sergio Ramos turned to Pedro Chueca, a masseuse who was employed by Los Blancos before he and a number of others on the medical staff were let go.

AS adds that Perez has no plans to change the medical staff or remove Dr Olmo, but has granted in writing Ronaldo the right to use his own physio, not one employed by the club.
