After Ronaldo returned from his mid season holiday,
Kleberson is now allowed to take a short break.
Ferguson said:

"His young lady has just had her baby so it's a good time to
do it. He will be back before the Northampton game but
whether he plays depends on what kind of training he has
done - we will have to review that.”

Ronaldo cut short his break to come back and fight for a
place in the first team:

"He came back early and has trained all week - it was nice
to see him back. He could have had a few more days. Some
players only need a few days' rest, and he got the break he
needed. It's his first season at the club, and that's the
main reason he was allowed this break.

"It could become a regular thing, but we will view it again
next year - he may need a break next year, but that depends
on how many games he has played and how he has matured over
the summer.”
