According to team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar on Friday, the 33-year-old Ronaldinho injured his thigh during training on Thursday and an MRI showed the 2002 World Cup winner had a torn muscle, reports Xinhua.

"We must be careful in talking about time frames when it comes to a muscle injury, it depends much on the player," Lasmar said.

"It is a serious injury and the recovery time is not short. He could be back in three months, three and a half or maybe even two and a half."
