“Ronaldo will score freely at Juventus F.C.”
Yes, that statement came from no other than the Juventus Manager, Massimiliano Allegri himself. And when your employers have so much confidence in you and respect for you, your life as an employee can only be compared with living in Paradise.
This is the kind of situation that Cristiano Ronaldo has found himself in at Juve even without kicking a ball yet. The player is still on holidays for now and that means he will be having little or no time to get used to his new colleagues and football style before the new season commences.
He is actually expected to join the squad when they return to Turin and that leaves Allegri with only training sessions to integrate the newly acquired forward.
But as one can already deduce from his Manager, Ronaldo has so much respect and trust that no one is bothered about his ability to deliver for the Turin Soccer Giants.
The Manager was asked about his plans for the player and in which position he is likely to be deployed to play. The following is what he had to say in reply to the question:
“Ronaldo will play where he has always played, in the front third,” Allegri told reporters after Juve’s 2-0 friendly win over Bayern Munich.
“And he will score goals as he always has.”
August 12 seems to be the most likely date when the teeming fans of Juventus F.C. and of course, Cristiano Ronaldo will finally see their new soccer idol in action for the team as they play a traditional friendly match against the Juve Youth Team.
Some of the youngsters are surely bound to have a swell day playing against their childhood idol on that occasion.
