Sky Sports

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo could make a surprise return to action against Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League next week.

The Portuguese winger underwent an ankle operation in the summer and had been expected to be sidelined until October.
However, Ferguson has now stated that his star asset is 'likely to be involved' against Villarreal on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old has returned to first-team training and could now hand Ferguson a massive boost as United begin their defence of the European Cup, live on Sky Sports 2 and HD 2.
Leaps and bounds
"Ronaldo is training now, he's with the first-team," Ferguson told United's official website.
"He's come on leaps and bounds. He's likely to be involved next week.
"I think we mentioned a couple of weeks ago he was making rapid progress in terms of overcoming the injury problem he had and the training he's been doing with the physios and Tony Strudwick the fitness coach.
"He's been making great strides in the direction towards the first-team.
