Cristiano Ronaldo, 36, has maintained his remarkable goal-scoring record since joining Manchester United from Juventus last summer, He has 14 goals in 20 games this season, although he has been chastised for his lack of match-work, with some questioning his suitability for interim boss Ralf Ragnick’s high-pressing style of play. He still wants to make sure he has everything at home to help out his game.
According to The Sun, Ronaldo has installed a hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) machine at his home in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, in order to improve his fitness. Ronaldo will supposedly be able to mend damaged tissue faster in the specifically built chamber by employing pure oxygen provided at a higher atmospheric level.
“Everyone knows Cristiano is a fitness fanatic and totally dedicated to being in the best shape he can be. He’s used oxygen chambers before in his career but they are not as easy to find in the UK so he decided to buy one and have it installed at his house. It means if he ever feels a twinge he can go and use it and get the benefits. These are the reasons why he misses so few games due to injury.”
The Portugal star is said to have used the similar gadget to hasten his rehabilitation from a knee injury suffered in the Euro 2016 final against France. Ronaldo’s foes will have to take even greater gulps now that he’s invested in this high-tech oxygen chamber to keep up his incredible fitness. He invested $20,000 on the HBOT.
In the privacy of his own home, the Manchester United legend can breathe pure air directly into blood plasma, assisting in the regeneration of injured tissue. When Manchester United takes on Wolves in the Premier League on Monday night, Ronaldo is anticipated to play.
Rangnick’s team can close the gap on the Champions League berths to one point if they win at Old Trafford. He is certainly putting in the work at home to make it happen.
