Manchester United – Now is a happy time for fans. Jaden Sancho, Rafael Varane and Man United, who have already formed a great team, have given the biggest surprise to Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of the transfer season! The 36-year-old Portuguese forward will wear his old number 7 jersey at Man United with the special permission of the English Premier League authorities, it was also confirmed two days ago.
But in Italy, the minds of Juventus supporters. Ronaldo has returned to United after leaving Juventus! A striker floating in the goal like a Portuguese forward is no longer available if you want! Juventus fans are also criticizing Ronaldo for leaving Juventus in a dramatic move towards the end of the transfer season.
Not only the fans, but also the former players have come down to criticize Ronaldo. Former two stars Sergio Brio and Alessio Takkinardi have said that Ronaldo has disrespected Juventus by leaving the club! He also admitted that it is difficult to find an alternative to ‘goal machine’ like Ronaldo.
Sergio Brio. Alessio Takkinardi. If you look at the football of the eighties and nineties, many people will know these two former stars of Juventus. Why only stars, legends can be said. Brio played for Juventus from 1984 to 1990. The former Italian defender has won four league titles as well as all of his potential UEFA titles at Juventus.
And Takkinardi? The Italian midfielder, who has won the league six times and the Champions League once in the 12 years since 1994, is another important figure in the history of Juventus. When Juventus’ current stadium opened in 2016, the names of 50 of the club’s historic players were inscribed on the stadium site, one of them being Takkinardi.
“Ronaldo should have been without Juventus in any other way,” Takinardi told the Italian daily Tuttosport. Before the match against Empoli (Juventus coach Massimiliano) when Allegri was discussing the match with everyone on the team, he should not have left the club on his own private plane. At least one press conference will say goodbye to the supporters, that’s all I expected. The supporters deserved a little more respect from him.
After leaving Real Madrid for Juventus in 2016, Ronaldo told the club that he felt ‘his own’, now that he has left Juventus for Man United, he has finally returned ‘home’. Takkinardi didn’t like it either, ‘(Alessandro) del Piero, (Francesco) Totti, (Paolo) Maldini, (Javier) Janetti are no more legends, I have to admit. But Ronaldo went there and said that he had returned to a club that looked like his home, it was not good to hear.
Takkinardi questioned Ronaldo’s move at the last minute of the transfer window, saying: “He has put Juventus in an embarrassing situation. He left the club a day or two before the end of the transfer season. After that, it is impossible to find an alternative to a goal machine like him in such a short time.
Brio said bluntly, “For three years now, Ronaldo has been disrespected by the fans who have followed Ronaldo’s example, and he has disrespected Juventus as well.”
‘Juventus deserved more respect. Ronaldo will ignore the club in this way, it was not expected. From his point of view, it was not a good thing. “Cristiano is a great professional, but he should have said goodbye.”
However, the change of team has been good for both Ronaldo and Juventus. Juventus Ronaldo, who is in a financially difficult situation in Corona, has already been rumored in Europe to be relieved of his salary burden. That’s why Brio says, “They may not have broken up nicely, but I think it’s good for both the players and the club.” If there was a player against his will, he would have been a headache for his teammates and the club.
In three years on the field, however, Ronaldo has never disrespected Juventus’ jersey. Although he did not succeed in winning the Champions League, Ronaldo scored 101 goals in 134 appearances in three years in Juve’s jersey.
