Italian newspaper calls Sarri 'Ronaldo's assistant'

The new coach Juventus met the Portuguese superstar, shortly after being appointed, was harassed by Italian media.

Libero (Italy) newspaper called Maurizio Sarri as "Cristiano Ronaldo 's assistant" when referring to the relationship between new coach Juventus and the Portuguese superstar. According to the report, the Golden Ball owner will make the most important decisions at the club, instead of the coach.

Calciomercato also has a similar view when emphasizing the details, Sarri rushed to France to meet Ronaldo, despite her summer vacation. "He tried to meet Ronaldo soon after being appointed. It was like a statement, who was the leader at Juventus," Calciomercato commented.

Ronaldo joined Juventus in the summer of 2018, when he was 33, and was the most expensive player in the club's history. Besides the highest salary of the team, the former Real Madrid player also enjoyed many privileges. Because of Ronaldo, the Turin side last season did not even use the brightest talent, Paulo Dybala, who helped Juventus win 3-0 in the Champions League quarter-finals in the 2016-2017 season.

However, Ronaldo's first season at Juventus was not as expected. Turin's team stopped in the Champions League quarter-finals - the arena is arguably their number one priority. The Portuguese superstar himself only scored 28 goals in every arena, the lowest number in 10 years. Coach Max Allegri is said to not know how to use superstar born in 1985, and according to Italian media, that is why he had to leave Juventus at the end of the season 2018-2019. "Ronaldo has just arrived at Juventus but immediately became the most important player in the team," Fox Sports emphasized on Ronaldo 's influence.
