Alessandro Del Piero believes that Juventus of Turin have poor results due to the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The former captain of Vecchia Signora reacted to the catastrophic start of his club at heart in Serie A. Currently 16th in the standings, with only one point collected in the space of three games, the Juventus is already lagging behind its direct competitors such asAC Milan, l’AS Rome or Naples who registered nine points each. For Alessandro Del Piero, the observation is simple: the start of the five-fold Ballon d’Or has a lot to do with it.
« I don’t think we should talk about bad preparation, but just face reality: obviously Ronaldo did not want to stay and the club could not hold him back, especially because of the financial aspect, confie-t-il à la Gazetta dello Sport. There is a lot of work to be done, in the locker rooms and on the pitch. »

One solution: everything for Ronaldo
« Ronaldo is a champion and he had to be taken. The problem was rather the lack of progress of the team around this superstar., continues the 2006 world champion. We have often found Cristiano’s performance almost irrelevant to Juventus’ performance and this is symptomatic of something that has gone wrong. The results on the European scene have not been up to par, but if we remember that City have yet to win a Champions League, we understand how investments are not always synonymous with victories.“, Concluded Del Piero. An example that seems irrelevant, however, when we remember the sums invested by Chelsea in the transfer window preceding their victory in the Champions League.
