Cristiano Ronaldo is fired up for the clash vs Porto in the UEFA Champions League, Andrea Pirlo has said. He recently revealed that the Portuguese is currently well-rested and he cannot wait to help the team progress to the next round of the competition.
According to him, Chiellini and De Ligt are getting ready to return from injury, and both players could be available for the best match.
He added that Alvaro Morata has really improved for Juventus this season, and he expects him to score more goals for the club.
His words, “Cristiano Ronaldo is fine, these are his matches. He’s fired up, he’s been able to rest and can’t wait.”
On his injured players, “[Giorgio] Chiellini trained with the group today, he feels good and I think he can be available for tomorrow’s game.”
“[Matthijs] De Ligt has worked with the group today just in terms of warm-up, then he did an individual training session.”
“Arthur is not at 100% but he could start tomorrow, we are hoping that he can last a while.”
“[Federico] Bernardeschi is fine and he has the possibilities to play from the start like the others but tomorrow morning I’ll decide.”
“Morata is improving a lot, he’s so ambitious, he looks for different solutions against different teams, he likes to read up on his opponents and this is a very positive aspect for a striker of his high level.”
“[Weston] McKennie is doing well enough, he has been carrying this problem with him for a while, we know that and we’re trying to manage it better. He can’t play for the full 90 minutes, so we are trying to manage him as best as we can.”
