Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo commented on Cristiano Ronaldo's heroics after the superstar scored a brace following 18 days of self-quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19.

The 35-year-old came off the bench during his side's 4-1 win over Spezia to score an important second goal just three minutes after entering the pitch to put Juve 2-1 up at the time.
Ronaldo later completed his brace from the penalty spot to hand the Bianconeri a first win in the league following two draws, and his manager was understandably happy with the boost the Portugal captain gave his team.
"We played a good match in the second half. We were well placed on the pitch with the desire to win and Ronaldo gave us a hand," Pirlo told Sky Sports.
Ronaldo had replaced Paulo Dybala when he came on, but Pirlo insisted that the duo can play together once everyone is back to full fitness.
"We changed our system a bit, we knew Arthur would have been more free to play a little behind. Ronaldo is improving and we were waiting for him," the coach explained.
"Both him and Dybala are improving, let's see how everyone feels in the coming days.
"We always play with four defenders in the defensive phase. I had these players available, when everyone will be back, we'll see how we can play, but the setting will be the same.
"We are improving, some players are coming back from injuries, and we'll have time to work on our ideas."
Juventus have climbed to third on the log with 12 points, while AC Milan lead the Serie A table with 16 points.
