'Ronaldo Bigger Than The Coach'

Following the superstar presence and experience Cristiano Ronaldo brought to Juventus, it has been claimed by a Serie A club president that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is more important to his team than his manager.

'CR7 Is Stronger Than Everyone Else'

Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis is a huge admirer of Ronaldo, who joined the Bianconeri from Real Madrid at the beginning of the season following nine incredible years in Spain.

Gli Azzurri's president has now claimed that the 34-year-old has a bigger presence than the coaches he has worked under, insisting it is Ronaldo who gets his team going.

Casillas on Zidane

"Cristiano Ronaldo is strong because he has replaced the coach with his presence in Serie A, why did the coach do more than he did in recent years?" De Laurentiis asked, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

"The real motivator is Ronaldo, he is the dressing room man.

"When I saw him play with his national team, he was sitting on the bench driving and shouting more than the coach to make them win."

'Ronaldo Thinks He Can Do Anything'

Ronaldo has scored 28 goals and assisted a further 13 strikes in 42 matches for Juventus so far this season.
