Cristiano Ronaldo has made a great start to the season at Manchester United, scoring four goals in three games and leading Solskjaer’s squad that is aiming for absolutely everything.
Juventus, however, are in the relegation places in Serie A, with just two points from four games and facing the worst start in their history. The feelings are even worse.
“Juve’s problem? Easy: Ronaldo is missing. A kind of technical doping,” says the analysis of ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, which also adds: “The brilliant impact of CR7 at United reinforces the theory that with Cristiano you always start 1-0”.
Last term, Cristiano scored 29 goals and has always maintained a consistency to lead the ‘Bianconeri’, but now under Allegri no one has picked up the baton and the team is mired in an unpredictable run.
“Ronaldo did not achieve the feat for which he had been hired, the Champions League,” they say of his time at Juventus, adding that he “never put himself on the line” for the Turin club.
