Foot – Market – Juventus
While he still had a year of contract, Cristiano Ronaldo decided to leave Juventus at the very end of the transfer window, to find Manchester United.
It is a soap opera that lasted for very long months. More precisely since March 2021 and the elimination of Juventus in the round of 16 of the Champions League, facing the FC Porto, a team a priori within the reach of Bianconeri. One year after being eliminated by theOlympique Lyonnais and two after theajax Amsterdam, this umpteenth failure seems to have been a kind of trigger for Cristiano Ronaldo, looking for a sixth Champions League and why not a sixth Ballon d’Or. Quickly, the Italian press took hold of the matter and began to talk about a departure of the Portuguese from the Juventus. Several destinations were mentioned, including the Paris Saint Germain as we explained to you on le10sport.com, but it is finally towards Manchester United that was the choice of the star of 36 years … who seemed however to pass very close to an arrival at the rival Manchester City.
“Ronaldo should have left another way, not in his private jet while Allegri spoke to the team before the game against Empoli”
If he has won admiration over the past three years with incredible performances, Cristiano Ronaldo did not really care for his departure. He has indeed been the subject of many criticisms since his departure to Manchester United, as was the case withAlessio Tacchinardi. « Ronaldo should have left in another way, not in his private jet while (Massimiliano) Allegri spoke to the team ahead of the game against Empoli. I expected a press conference to say goodbye to the fans. They deserved something different “Judged the former midfielder of Juventus, in an interview with Tuttosport. « He put Juventus in a tough spot, leaving a few days before the end of the transfer window it’s impossible to replace a goal machine like him ».
“Juventus deserve more respect”
Others went over. This is the case of Sergio Brio, icon of the Juventus of the 80s, which did not spare Cristiano Ronaldo. ” Juventus deserve more respect, I didn’t expect Ronaldo to snub the club like that. It is not good of him. I always speak well of the three clubs where I played: Juventus, Lecce and Pistoiese because they signed me and believed in me. Cristiano is a great professional, but his farewell should have been different »Explained the former defender, still in the columns of Tuttosport, before admitting that leaving was the only solution. ” Maybe they didn’t part in a good way, but I’m convinced it was the right thing for the player and the club. If a player is forced to stay, he could cause damage to his teammates and the club ».
