Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo will not take part in this weekend's Amsterdam tournament.

The Portuguese ace has only just returned to training this week after his involvement at the World Cup.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has decided not to include Ronaldo, Louis Saha and Mikael Silvestre for the trip to Holland due to their extended summer holiday.

"Obviously some players will go and some won't," said Ferguson.

"Because for instance Saha, Silvestre and Ronaldo were just back in training on Monday. They won't go."

Ferguson also revealed Gabriel Heinze and Nemanja Vidic will not be involved as they battle to shake off injuries.

"Heinze and Vidic are still recovering from injuries and they won't travel either," he added.

"All the rest will go including Michael (Carrick)."
