Ronaldo failed to find the net against Lazio on Saturday, despite playing a front of Turin faithful. Despite his inability to score, Juve went on to win the game 2-0 with Pjanic and Mandzukic on target.
Ronaldo however made headlines for his golden miss in the encounter. The Portuguese who released by Joao Cancello made an attempt but shot-stopper Thomas Strakosha was at the right place to make a save. The save however did not stop Mario Mandzukic from netting a rebound.
Matuidi has no worries about Ronaldo as he believes the Portuguese will shine at Turin. “He is the best player in the world,” Matuidi said. “For us it is something exceptional, we are very happy to play with him”. “We’re going to help him score goals because it is in his DNA”. “We know that if he scores goals it will help us win more matches. Of course, we will learn from his game. Juventus is another culture. For him, for us, to understand his game”. “He is someone who goes forward very quickly, who is very mobile, we need to understand each other better”. “We will improve in that sense and I know he will score an enormous amount of goals”.
Allegri also added his voice to the France internationals. The Juve boss believes Ronaldo will shine in weeks and months to come. “It’s only two weeks that he’s with us,” Allegri said. “He’s intelligent and understands that Italian football is different to that in Spain”. “Today he played well also in defence, everyone is waiting for his first goal. I’m happy with how he’s fitting in, he is a very humble lad”.
