How Cristiano Ronaldo reacted to missing Juventus vs Barcelona
According to Tuttosport on Wednesday, however, while Cristiano Ronaldo may be physically fine, he’s reportedly more than frustrated by being told to stay home.
After finding out he’s still testing positive for Covid, Ronaldo reportedly told his friends he feels “like a beast forced to stay in a cage”.
The clear picture being painted is that Ronaldo is not handling his isolation too well.
Will Ronaldo burst back onto the scene when he’s finally allowed to return to action?

When will Cristiano Ronaldo be allowed to start playing for Juventus again?
It’s been widely reported in the Italian media that Ronaldo has a very low viral load.
However, until Cristiano manages to test negative, he’ll be forced to sit on the sidelines.
Ronaldo has now missed four Juve games, including this Barcelona clash.
It’s worth remembering that Ronaldo’s Juve team-mate, Paulo Dybala, missed 6 weeks of action earlier in the year after he tested positive for Covid on four occasions.
