Cristiano Ronaldo suffers a partly torn MCL that could keep him out up to four or five months, according to the first explorations by the Portuguese doctors in France. If that first medical report is confirmed, Ronaldo will miss the UEFA Supercup for Madrid and also the first few matches in the 2016-17 Liga BBVA season.

The Portuguese star did not visit any hospital after leaving the match though, so he still needs to run some tests on that left knee to confirm how severe his injury is.

Ronaldo was forced to leave the Final after an aggressive tackle by Dimitri Payet in the opening minutes of the game. He tried to stay on the pitch but then realized that his knee was bothering him way too much.

Portugal managed to win the trophy without their captain and Ronaldo had more than enough reasons to celebrate their victory. He will have time to worry about his knee in the upcoming days.
