Ronaldo has shown off the extent of the facial injuries he suffered after being booted by Fabian Schar during Real Madrid’s win over Deportivo.
The Portuguese ace was left covered in blood as he stopped to head home a Casemiro cross for his second goal of the game in Real’s emphatic 7-1 win .
But today he was being put through his paces by the coaching staff ahead of Real’s Copa del Rey quarter final match with Leganes.
Despite leading 1-0 from the first leg, Ronaldo looks keen to finish off the job, taking to the training field with a black eye and gauze over the right side of his face.
After he scored, Ronaldo was desperate to find out what sort of damage he had done to his face.
As he was getting treatment, he borrowed a PHONE from Real’s physio to check on how he was looking.
Ronaldo received more treatment after the match and showed off a scar next to his eye.
He was back in training on Monday, arriving with a plaster on the wound.
The Portuguese scored twice as Real returned to winning ways in style at the Bernabeu.
Gareth Bale and Nacho were also at the double for Zinedine Zidane’s men, with Luka Modric completing the scoring.
After the clash, Zidane said: “He has got a wound and I think he’s been given two or three stitches. He’s all right.”
On the win, he added: “It’s always great and a positive feeling to win, netting seven goals at home.
“It’s not every day you get seven goals at the Bernabeu, so we’re thrilled with that today.”
