Cristiano Ronaldo suffered a partly torn MCL that forced him to leave the UEFA Euro 2016 Final against France after just 15 minutes of play. The Portuguese Football Federation published a first medical report on Ronaldo but the player hasn't received proper treatment and evaluation after. Dr. José González spoke to AS about Ronaldo's injury and said that he could be out up to 8 weeks.

"They haven't done an MRI on him just yet so we can't know how severe his injury is, but taking a look at what we saw on television, how his feet was standing on the ground while the knee rotates and how badly the pain was for him, we can at least say that it's a partly torn MCL. The recovery time for this injury is from 6 up to 8 weeks, but it's a tricky ligament that needs to be taken care of properly, as it allows you to run after just 10 days but hitting the ball could severely increase the time it needs to heal, so based on my experience he will surely miss the Supercup," said Dr. González.

Real Madrid have yet to release a statement on Ronaldo's condition.
