Ronaldo Returns to Paris for Checkup

Published May 22nd, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

Brazilian star striker Ronaldo of Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan on Monday returned for checkup tests on his injured knee to the Pitie Salpetriere hospital where he underwent surgery last month. 

The 23-year-old tore a tendon in his right knee just minutes after his return to action after a long lay-off in last month's Italian Cup final first-leg against Lazio which Inter went on to lose 2-1. 

Professor Gerard Saillant, who operated on the star striker, has prepared a rehabilitation program for the first four months for Ronaldo who is being treated in Milan by Inter's physiotherapists for the next few weeks before continuing his recovery in Brazil -- (AFP)
