Cristiano Ronaldo said Monday that he

intends to come back stronger for the

upcoming season despite the injury he

sustained while playing for Portugal in

their victorious Euro 2016 final.

The Real Madrid striker, who played a

key part in leading his country to a

maiden major title, limped off in tears

with a knee injury in the first half of the

final against hosts France earlier this


The 31-year-old has a sprained ligament

in his left knee, and Spanish sports daily

Marca reported that he is unlikely to

return to action before Real’s third game

of the domestic La Liga season.

“Hi everyone! I just wanted to thank all

my fans,” Ronaldo said in a video on his

Instagram account.

“I wanted to tell them that all is well and

that I will come back much stronger.

Thank you, long live Portugal!”

After suffering the initial injury, the

three-time Ballon D’Or winner tried to

play on but had to be replaced in the 25th

minute, before striker Eder grabbed the

only goal of the game in extra time.
