The individualistic behavior of Cristiano Ronaldo during his time at Juventus is still singled out in the Italian press.
Decidedly, Cristiano Ronaldo takes it for his rank this week in the Italian press. After being scratched by Giorgio Chiellini for DAZN, the Portuguese striker is criticized in the columns of Tuttosport for his passage to the Juventus, between 2018 and 2021.
It is the behavior of the five-fold Golden Ball in the locker room that would be questioned. CR7 would never have respected the laws of “Equality, unity and humility”, according to the Turin daily. So there were the rules for Ronaldo, and the rules for the rest of the team.
In addition to a sometimes negative attitude, especially when bad balls were addressed to him, Ronaldo annoyed his teammates by his lack of defensive investment, while Juve had relied in previous seasons on very hardworking strikers, like Carlos Tevez , Mario Mandzukic or Gonzalo Higuain.
Ronaldo is also considered responsible for the failed start of the season for the Bianconeri (two points taken in the first four days of Serie A), and Leandro Bonucci did not hide this week that the team felt better without the Portuguese. “It’s absolutely true, entrusted the European champion to Sky Italia. In the recent past we had lost that collective characteristic of Juve, we were playing with a great champion like CR7 and we wanted to put him in a position to always do well, thinking he could solve any game. This year, we rediscover that just humility which serves to regain victory. “
