Enthusiastic fans, games that are never simple, with refereeing decisions that are controversial and send shivers down the spine.”It did add that Ronaldo was a “superior player”Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.La RepubblicaRating: 6.5/10“Played well starting out on the left and drifting towards the middle. Similar to what Dybala does, but on the other wing. Juventus will play with a 4-2-4 because Douglas Costa and Cuadrado are further forward in attack. Ronaldo played well but Bernardeschi was decisive.”Corriere dello SportOn Bernardeschi’s 93rd-minute winner: “Until that point the game had been dominated by the figure of Cristiano Ronaldo. The big star of the afternoon in Verona.”Il Messaggero“It would be a mistake to think that Cristiano is enough to ensure victory, as Allegri said before the game. And so it was proved.”La Stampa“But that is the least of it for a Juve side that has yet to find the necessary balance with Ronaldo on the pitch. The Portuguese did everything he could to leave his mark, but he quickly discovered that Serie A is not the same as LaLiga.”last_img
