Cristiano Ronaldo risking his career if he doesn't rest his knee

'El Confidencial' strikes back with some shocking information once again.

Cristiano Ronaldo appears to be alright, other than losing 4-0 against Germany and struggling to have a single chance because of the poor level of his teammates. But according to El Confidencial, the Portuguese player is risking his career by playing through his tendinitis on his left knee. The Portuguese player would need to be out of the pitch for two months if he wants to avoid a serious injury like the one Rafa Nadal had when he stopped playing tennis for seven months.

It's not that El Confidencial is a very realiable source. Last summer, they reported that Isco had chosen Manchester City over Real Madrid just a couple of days before the playmaker signed his contract with los blancos. But it's true that Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be playing through some physical problems, and he could use some rest. Considering that Portugal might be knocked-out of the competition on this Group Stage after their big loss against Germany, it would be good both for the player and Real Madrid to give Ronaldo a couple of months of rest.
