#FCdebate: Ronaldo injury concern?

Cristiano Ronaldo was forced off at half-time of Tuesday's Spanish Super Cup final first leg, leading to speculation and debate that the reigning World Player of the Year is increasingly prone to injury.

On the one hand, there are facts to support the argument. As Dermot Corrigan points out, the Portuguese was slowed by a knee problem at the end of last season that also impacted his performance at the World Cup and had an effect on his preseason.

However, Ronaldo has scored at least 50 goals in each of the past four seasons and last week was on target twice in the UEFA Super Cup. Moreover, he is expected to feature in Friday's Super Cup second leg.

So should there be cause for concern about his long-term future or not? Listen to what Alejandro and Craig have to say, then vote. Plus, let us know what you think by commenting below or on Twitter, using the hashtag #FCdebate.

* Update -- Voting has closed and, as you can see, the majority do have concerns that Ronaldo's injuries could affect his long-term future.

Look out for another #FCdebate next Friday. In the meantime, thanks for your votes and comments!

Are Cristiano Ronaldo's injuries cause for concern?
