It seems like the problems seem to be mounting for Juventus as new reports claim that their marquee striker, Cristiano Ronaldo skipped the team’s practice session ahead of their match against Sassuolo. Ronaldo preferred to visit the Ferrari factory in Maranello with club chief Andrea Agnelli and John Elkann.
There were reports from Italy earlier in the season, stating that Cristiano Ronaldo would end up leaving Juventus if the team fails to qualify for the Champions League spot. As per the current scenario, after a 3-0 humiliating defeat via the hands of AC Milan, Juventus are on the 5th spot in the Serie A table behind Napoli on 69 points.
Would Cristiano Ronaldo head out of Juventus?
After Juventus failed to put together a combined team performance, they were knocked out of the Round of 16 tie against FC Porto. Over the past couple of years, with Cristiano Ronaldo in their squad, the Bianconeri have failed to get past the Quarter Finals stage.
Summing it up, Juventus has been in a bad form for a while now. Given such results, Andrea Pirlo’s job is also on the line at the moment. While he suggested that he shall continue to abide by his duties as a manager until his last attempt to bring back Juventus’ pride.
Having lost the chance to fetch 10 consecutive Serie A titles in a row, these 3 remaining matches are key for Juventus to make an impact in the Serie A. With Sassuolo, Inter Milan and Bologna set as their remaining fixture for the 2020-21 season.
It remains to be seen whether or not Cristiano Ronaldo-led Juventus will be able to make it into the top 4 spots or not.
