“He put Juventus in a difficult situation,” Juve legends hit out at Ronaldo

Juventus legends Sergio Brio and Alessio Tacchinardi have criticized Cristiano Ronaldo for the manner in which he left the club, adding that the Portuguese should have notified the club on time.

Ronaldo left Juventus to rejoin Manchester United on the last day of August and his move didn’t sit well with some legends at the club, as they feel the club didn’t have extra time to get a suitable replacement.

Juve great Tacchinardi thinks things could have been handled differently, telling Tuttosport: “Ronaldo should have left in a different way, not on his private jet while [Massimiliano] Allegri was talking to the team before the game against Empoli. I expected a press conference to say goodbye to the fans. They deserved something different.

“He put Juventus in a difficult situation, leaving a few days before the end of the transfer window, it is impossible to replace a goal machine like him.”

Brio, another club legend, believes Ronaldo should have given the Serie A heavyweights more notice and bid a proper farewell to fans that idolised him for three years.

Brio said: “Juventus deserve more respect, I didn’t expect Ronaldo to snub the club like this. It was not nice of him.”

Ronaldo scored 101 goals for Juve in 134 appearances, helping them to two Serie A titles.
