'Ronaldo Has Been A Failure At Juventus'

Cristiano Ronaldo has been a failure at Juventus and has made the club worse, according to a former Real Madrid striker.

Antonio Cassano has made his feelings quite clear about Ronaldo's impact in Turin in the past since his move from Real Madrid back in 2018.

Juventus have won back-to-back to Serie A titles in the past two seasons but are yet to make the final of the UEFA Champions League since their last appearance against Real in 2017.

"Juventus signed him to win the Champions League, but they've done worse with him than they've done before," Cassano told Corriere dello Sport when asked about the Portuguese and his relationship with Andrea Pirlo.

"They'd also won the Scudetto [Serie A title] without him. I think he's been a failure.

"It's been a mistake [pitting Ronaldo and Pirlo together]. Juve have only been interested in winning for 120 years, but [Maurizio] Sarri and Pirlo tried to change their identity.

"They've tried to improve their style of play rather than win. Cristiano just doesn't work in the same way as Andrea.

"He'll keep scoring goals because he knows how to do that no matter what. He'll cut in from the left, get the ball on his right foot and fire it in.

"But Pirlo wants to build the play, pressure the opposition and play between the lines, and this means Cristiano doesn't participate much.

"I think Cristiano has done terribly over the last three years."
