Ronaldo up for final

Ap
Thursday, May 22, 2014

MADRID - Cristiano Ronaldo expects to be fit to play for Real Madrid in Sunday's Champions League final against Atletico Madrid.

"I'll be there. Today I'm not 100 per cent but I will be for the final," Ronaldo said yesterday.

"It's very important, we worked all season to play the final and win it."

Ronaldo has been nursing various leg knocks since the beginning of April.

"It was bad luck that I've had all these problems over the close of the season. It's normal at the end of the season," the Portugal international said.

"Nobody wants to miss a final with such high expectations that we have been vying to reach for years.

"I want to help Real Madrid win it. I'm confident I'll be 100 per cent for the final."

Madrid is vying to win its record 10th European Cup and first in 12 years.

The Spanish giant has struggled without Ronaldo in the line-up.
