Cristiano Ronaldo Returns To Man United Training After Illness, Ahead Of Everton's Clash.

Manchester United's star Cristiano Ronaldo has promised to 'keep battling' as he prepares to return to football action this Saturday. 

CloudNine Sports had reported last week that the 37-year-old missed out of the matchday squad due to illness when the Red Devils played a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City.

Bruno Fernandes led the line for United without the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, as Rangnick also left out the struggling Marcus Rashford.

Edinson Cavani (calf) was also out due to injury. 

The Portugal captain is back in training after accelerating his recuperation for the game against a relegation threatened Everton side on Saturday afternoon at 12:30pm (NGA).

This comes as a good news for the United fans and interim boss Ralf Rangnick as United looks to continue their push for fourth place finish. 

Rangnick will address other selection difficulties ahead of his pre-match news conference on Friday afternoon, but Ronaldo has already provided him the largest boost. 

Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in all competitions since returning to Old Trafford last summer.

Since leaving United for the just concluded international break, Ronaldo helped his country Portugal qualify for the 2022 World Cup championships in Qatar and scored a sensational hat-trick against Tottenham that saw him win the United's Player of the Month for March.

The United star recently shared a photo of himself working with fellow countryman Diogo Dalot on his social media handles, Ronaldo said:  "Work hard, focus on the everyday goals, enjoy the moments with your friends. Great training session with my boy Dalot! Keep fighting."
