Pepe advised Cristiano Ronaldo to stay in Juventus
Ronaldo was advised to stay in Juve by a former Real Pepe team-mate, who confirmed that the striker is very happy in Turin.
Cristiano Ronaldo continues to impress
The veteran appears poised to end 2020-21 on a low note, with his side outside the Champions League and is facing the uphill battle to keep Serie A. But even at 36, he still continues to impress in front of the gate and, according to Pepe, could stay with the Italian giants for several more years.
When asked if Cristiano would think about returning to his native nation, Pepe replied that honestly, given how he knows him, I don’t know if he will tolerate the way many people talk about football in Portugal and he thinks he happy in Turin, he is the leading goalscorer in Serie A, those who criticize him do not know how difficult it is to score more than 30 goals every year. He also said that what Ronaldo can do is incredible and hopes he will stay there for years to come, bringing joy to football fans and representing Portugal very well, as he has always done.
Cristiano Ronaldo after leaving Madrid
Cristiano caused a storm in 2018 when he cut his time in Madrid shortly after leading the club to their third consecutive Champions League title. In Turin, there were high hopes that he would bring European glory to Juventus, but so far the old woman has not even coped with the record scorer of the competition in her ranks. Juve made it to the quarterfinals during its debut season in 2018-19 and has dropped in the last 16 in the last two campaigns, while Madrid have fought to seven to face PSG.
The Turin side choke on the Scudetto also looks ready for an end. After winning the last nine editions of Serie A, they are now in third place, 12 points behind the leaders of the Inter – despite the best efforts of Cristiano, who came out on top 25 times in the league.
