CRISTIANO RONALDO chose to spend his Sunday relaxing in his pool wearing a pair of tiny swimming shorts as he recovers from injury.
The 36-year-old missed Manchester United’s 2-2 draw at Aston Villa with a thigh issue.
But he seemed happy enough as he posted an envious photo of him in a pool onto Instagram.
He simply captioned it ‘relaxing’ and gave the thumbs up, sporting his own branded shorts – although they might have been boxers.
SunSport exclusively revealed he left training early because of a new injury, and it saw him miss the trip to Villa Park.
Interim chief Ralf Rangnick said: “With Ronaldo, it’s unfortunate, it’s still the same problem.
“I had a conversation with him yesterday before and after training and he decided he’s not fully fit, but hopefully he’ll be available on Wednesday.”
Ronaldo was looked at by United’s medical specialists before driving home where he will make use of his own private oxygen chamber he has had put in his house.
