Ex Juventus manager, Andrea Pirlo has come out to say that Cristiano Ronaldo was not a troublesome player to manage. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Ronaldo was an exemplary professional in every aspect when he was coach of Juventus, and the way he trained even motivated the youngsters at the club to do the same.
Pirlo added that coaching Ronaldo was a huge honor for him, especially because of the career he has had.
His words, “Training Ronaldo makes you understand how to become number one in the world. He’s an exemplary professional in every aspect: from how he eats, how he recovers, to how he trains.”
