Manchester United boosted by Ronaldo return
Cristiano Ronaldo trained with his Manchester United team-mates this morning and could be involved in tomorrow's Champions League encounter with Danish minnows Aalborg at Old Trafford tomorrow.
Ronaldo limped off with what appeared to be a severe hip problem during the win over Sunderland on Saturday and seemed to be a major doubt for the European champions as they wrap up their Group E campaign.
Manager Sir Alex Ferguson has stated he intends to make changes, and the influx of a number of fringe players indicated Ronaldo might not be involved from the start anyway.
However, having the Ballon D'Or winner available is at least a bonus, especially as three points will be vital on Saturday when the Red Devils visit Tottenham.
Of his first-team squad, Michael Carrick, Patrice Evra and young striker Daniel Welbeck were not training this morning, meaning John O'Shea, who has been suffering from a hamstring injury, should be involved in some capacity.
