Ronaldo unhurt in Ferrari crash

Cristiano Ronaldo was involved in a car crash on his way to training with Manchester United on Thursday morning.

The Portuguese winger's £120,000 Ferrari collided with a roadside barrier close to Manchester Airport as he travelled to United's Carrington training ground at around 10:20 UK time.

Greater Manchester Police spoke to Ronaldo at the scene and are also reportedly interested in talking to United keeper Edwin van der Sar.

Ronaldo was unhurt in the incident and trained normally with the rest of the squad.

He is expected to play a full part in the champions' Premier League match at home to Chelsea on Sunday.

"Officers attended and discovered a Ferrari had collided with a barrier. No one is believed to have been injured," said a statement by GMP.

"Inquiries are continuing."

No further details were immediately available, but the player's car is believed to be a write-off.

Ronaldo made a substitute appearance in Wednesday's 1-0 Carling Cup semi-final first leg defeat away to Derby.

When he arrived at training, he and the rest of the squad may have received a hostile reception from manager Alex Ferguson, who was left furious by United's display.

"We could have lost by four goals," Ferguson said. "We were lucky. We were so bad that Derby will rue the fact they didn't score more."
