Cristiano Ronaldo Is The Future Of Juventus – Allegri

- April 19th, 2019- Sports

Cristiano Ronaldo is the future of Juventus even if he cannot guarantee a Champions League triumph, head coach Massimiliano Allegri has said.

Ronaldo scored his 26th goal of the season against Ajax on Tuesday, but it was not enough to prevent a 2-1 defeat that sent Juve crashing out of the competition at the quarter-final stage.

There have also been suggestions the 34-year-old will only commit to playing for Juve until the end of next season, despite having signed a four-year contract when he joined from Real Madrid last July in a €112million deal.

Allegri, however, says Ronaldo is “calm” despite the disappointment of the Ajax defeat and insists he will be a pivotal figure moving forward.

“Ronaldo has had an incredible season,” he told a news conference on Friday.
“The Champions League is over – the result is that we were knocked out. Ronaldo plus Juventus does not guarantee the Champions League. There are so many components in football.

“He is the future of Juventus. He has done well this year and will do great things next year. He’s disappointed but he’s calm about it, like everyone else.”

Juve face Fiorentina on Saturday knowing that anything but a defeat would guarantee an eighth Serie A title in a row.

Allegri wants fans to be prepared to celebrate such an achievement with gusto and forget the frustrations of their European exit.

“It would be an eighth Scudetto in a row and therefore something to be proud of. It should be a party!” he said.

“We can’t change the Champions League, so we enjoy what we have. Coming to the stadium, having the negativity of the Champions League and not celebrating the Scudetto would be wrong. We have to celebrate winning a trophy.
