Ex Italy international, Antonio Cassano has come out to say that signing Cristiano Ronaldo was a mistake for Juventus. He recently revealed that the Italian club signed the Portuguese to win the UCL, but they’re currently worse off for it.
According to him, he is very certain that Juventus would have won the Scudetto without Ronaldo, so it is obvious that his project is a wrong one.
He added that Cristiano will keep scoring goals no matter what, but he’ll still not fit into Pirlo’s plans for the club.
His words, “Juventus signed him to win the Champions League, but they’ve done worse with him than they’ve done before,”
“They would have won the Scudetto [Serie A title] without him. It was the wrong project.”
“He’ll keep scoring goals because he knows how to do that no matter what. He’ll cut in from the left, get the ball on his right foot and fire it in. His headers are unique.”
“But [head coach Andrea] Pirlo wants to build the play, pressure the opposition and play between the lines, and this means Cristiano doesn’t participate much.”
“I think he will have done badly unless they manage to win the Champions League.”
