Cristiano Ronaldo is a few weeks away from starting the fourth season wearing the Juventus jersey. The Portuguese attacker, despite the fact that he could not win the Champions League, has fulfilled what was projected by the directive at the local level: two trophies from Serie A, two from the Italian Super Cup and one Italian Cup.

After being eliminated in the round of 16 of the European Championship with the national team, the footballer will take a well-deserved vacation, but it is still not clear whether he will continue in Turin (his contract expires in June 2022) or will leave with Manchester United and PSG as possible destinations.

While the matter is being resolved, in the last hours David Trezeguet, a former Juventus player, appeared on the scene to comment on some details of the intern. The world champion with France in 1998 hinted that there were problems in the dressing room because of preferences with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Along the same lines, the retired soccer player admitted that, at the time, the leaders of ‘Juve’ made a great move to close the incorporation of the Portuguese. However, the board of directors did not calculate that, as the years progressed (there have already been three), they have not been able to manage the presence of the star in the best way.

"The greatest genius was signing Cristiano Ronaldo, nobody expected 'CR7' in a club that in its DNA always took the utmost care with the balance. Sure, there was some problem with the teammates, but he scored 100 goals ”, Trezeguet said in a conversation with the local newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport. In that sense, the Frenchman commented that Zinedine Zidane was the right man to handle a complicated dressing room that, in the face of the imposing presence of the Portuguese, had problems moving towards a common goal.

As a sample, last season: the Portuguese was the team's top scorer, but in the group they only won one trophy and they struggled to reach the Champions League. “I think that nobody like Zidane would have known how to manage it. In Juve, perhaps, there was a lack of dialogue. A coach can pick up a player, show him a game and say, "Look, you walked for 90 minutes, help me win." There are players who make you win and you cannot have them against you, Ronaldo is one of those and also Dybala. Others, with due respect, less ”, he declared.
