The Juventus captain, Andrea Pirlo insists he does not select players by status. What a relationship a 41-year-old specialist and a 35-year-old forward have.
Juventus head coach Andrea Pirlo has spoken about his relationship with the team’s main star, Cristiano Ronaldo. The 41-year-old specialist claims that he has no special attitude towards the Portuguese and treats him just like any other player of the club.
“I treat him the same way as other players. We are simple, humble people, and we do not have a relationship with each other. I have the same attitude towards Ronaldo, who is a champion, like Gianluca Frabotta or Manolo Portanova from the youth team. I am like that, and I was like that even when “I was playing football. Everyone can talk to me on and off the pitch,” said Andrea Pirlo.
Earlier it was written that the specialist had an excellent relationship with Ronaldo. Thanks to this, the Portuguese reconsidered leaving Juventus until the expiration of his contract, which runs until 2022. The 35-year-old forward has defended the dignity of Juventus in 6 matches this season and has scored 8 goals and 1 assist.
Andrea Pirlo took over Turin’s Juventus before the start of the season. At the moment, the Old Lady is in the 4th place in the tournament table of the Italian championship, with 16 points. At the same time, the Turinese are also in Group G of the Champions League, where Juve are in 2nd place with 6 points. They will play their next match on November 24, at home against Hungarian Ferencvaros (1).
