Coach of Juventus Andrea Pirlo has revealed that Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo gets the same treatment just like other players in the club.
Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo has insisted that talisman Ronaldo does not receive any exceptional treatment at the club despite his status.
Ronaldo has been in fine form for the old lady despite missing games following his positive coronavirus result, forcing him to self- Isolate thereby missing games with Portugal.
However, that has not stopped him from scoring eight times in six games for Pirlo’s side this season.
His latest being a brace in Juve’s 2-0 win over Cagliari on Saturday, helping his club secure all three points in the Serie A.
Speaking to media men ahead of Tuesday, Champions league against Ferencvaros, Pirlo said”I haven’t challenged [Ronaldo] on set-pieces yet. I treat him like I treat all the other players. I’m always available on and off the pitch.
“It’s easy to have a good relationship between humble people. I’m like that. I behave with him – a champion – like I do with [Gianluca] Frabotta or [Manolo] Portanova, who are two young players.
“I do the same things I was used to doing when I was a player.”
Juventus are second on the table in group G behind Barcelona who remains unbeaten in the champions league this season.
