Juventus ace and five-time Ballon d’Or owner Cristiano Ronaldo is poised to return to football after he was forced to isolating himself after he was diagnosed for having COVID-19 positive.

The most important news to the fans of this maverick footballer is that CR7 would make a comeback as he was tested negative for Coronavirus.

Ronaldo is set for another confirmatory test on Saturday and will have individual training. He could be called for the weekend’s plan for Juventus against Spezia, if the second test comes negative.

Meantime, Juventus have also confirmed the news in a statement on their official website.

Cristiano Ronaldo carried out a check with a diagnostic test (swab) for Covid-19.
The exam provided a negative result. The player has, therefore, recovered after 19 days and is no longer subjected to home isolation.

Juventus Statement

Previously, the Portuguese tested positive for COVID-19 on October 13 while on international duty, playing UEFA Nations League for Portugal, forcing him to the next match against Sweden.

For Juventus, they were forced to field a team without talisman forward, in two Serie A and two Champions League matches. Juve lost four points with two draws against Verona and newly promoted Crotone. At the same time, they lost out to Barcelona in European top flying competition.

It must have been very tough on Cristiano Ronaldo as his team was beaten by the La Liga outfit and moreover, Barcelona posted a social media post fueling long-standing GOAT debate.

It must have been very hard for Cristiano as he posted and then deleted a comment on Instagram questioning the accuracy of the PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) tests.

Ronaldo created another controversy when he came back to Turin after COVID-19 positive diagnosis.

Cristiano did not respect the protocol. There is an investigation by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office to prove it.
The virus has taught us that no one is exempt, obviously they are all people who have tried to respect the protocols as much as possible, but the only solution, in the end, is to stay at home.
