C.Ronaldo loses sight in both eyes during Levante’s clash.Out of Gabon’s friendly

Cristiano Ronaldo is out of Portugal’s friendly with Gabon on Wednesday after ‘losing the vision in both his eyes’ following an elbow in the face during Real Madrid’s win over Levante.

Ronaldo was due to have tests at a Madrid hospital after being caught by defender David Navarro in the opening exchanges of last night’s clash.

Ronaldo returned to the action after being patched up on the sidelines and even managed to score Real’s opener in the 21st minute.

However, the former Manchester United star was unable to return for the second half and coach Jose Mourinho said that his star forward ‘lost vision in both eyes and couldn’t go on’.

Ronaldo arrived at the Portugal team hotel in Lisbon on Monday but he will play no part against Gabon in Libreville.

Spanish champions Madrid, whose title defence got off to an erratic start, are third on 23 points, five behind Atletico Madrid in second and eight behind unbeaten Barca.

‘For all of us who have played football, whether well or badly, it was a party when you played in the rain as a kid and I think that in their way, people like it,’ he said.

‘The more technical side and the referee have more problems, the fans too because it’s cold and raining. That’s part of football too and you have to adapt.’

Spanish media reported that Levante captain Sergio Ballesteros had clashed with Real defender Pepe near the dressing rooms after the game and police officers had to intervene to calm down officials and players from both teams.
