CR7 Will Start

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has revealed that star player Cristiano Ronaldo will start against Osasuna at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.

The Portuguese had suffered an injury in the Blancos' 0-0 draw with Real Mallorca in their opening game of the league campaign and missed Portugal's two Euro 2012 qualifiers. However, Ronaldo seems to have recovered and Mourinho believes that he is fit to start.

"Cristiano Ronaldo will be a starter," Mourinho is quoted as saying by Madrid's official website. "I am afraid of the possibility he may get injured again. I am afraid someone may hit him, but that's normal in football.
