Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been left fuming after he was excluded from their squad for Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Barcelona.
Ronaldo will miss the game following his positive COVID-19 test.
The 35-year-old has been self-isolating since he tested positive for the virus while on international duty with Portugal this month.
Ronaldo had hoped to feature in the Group G fixture with a chance to once again go up against Lionel Messi, but needed a negative test 24 hours prior to kick-off in Turin.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Ronaldo said he was “feeling good and healthy”, but the five-time Ballon d’Or winner then followed that up with a comment questioning the accuracy of the Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.
“PCR IS BULLSH*T”, he wrote, before eventually deleting the comment.
PCR tests are the most common way to test for coronavirus and are believed to be the most accurate.
Juventus confirmed the forward’s absence from the squad for the midweek clash in Turin, while centre-back Leonardo Bonucci was included having passed a late fitness test.
