Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo has explained how he treats Cristiano Ronaldo in comparison to the rest of his squad.
The Portugal superstar has been a key man for Juve so far this season, having already knocked in eight goals in just six games.
According to Goal, Ronaldo is responsible for 29 of the club's 59 strikes in the Italian top flight in 2020.
However, speaking ahead of their UEFA Champions League tie with Ferencvaros, Pirlo insisted that he offers no special treatment to their talisman.
Scroll through the gallery below to see where Ronaldo ranks among Europe's top goalscorers in the 2020/21 campaign so far:
"... I treat him (Ronaldo) like I treat all the other players. I'm always available on and off the pitch," he said in a pre-match press conference, per Goal.
"It's easy to have a good relationship between humble people. I'm like that.
"I behave with him – a champion – like I do with (Gianluca) Frabotta or (Manolo) Portanova, who are two young players.
"I do the same things I was used to doing when I was a player."
