'Ronaldo’s Signing Has Been A Total Failure'

Despite Cristiano Ronaldo scoring more than any other Juventus player since he joined the club, his transfer has been labelled a "total failure".

Ronaldo has received a lot of criticism after Juventus got knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Porto last week, but he responded with a perfect hat-trick this past weekend.

Former Real Madrid striker Antonio Cassano, though, has once again hit out at the 36-year-old, saying Juve made a mistake in buying him.

"Juventus signed him to win the Champions League, but with him they did worse than before," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"They would've won the Scudetto without his arrival. His signing has been a total failure. They made a mistake.

"At Juve, for 120 years, they are only interested in winning, but with (Maurizio) Sarri and (Andrea) Pirlo they tried to change their identity.

"Cristiano doesn't fit in at all with Pirlo's ideas."

Ronaldo is currently the leading goalscorer in Serie A, scoring 23 goals in 23 appearances – four more than second-placed Romelu Lukaku.
