Cristiano Ronaldo had eight attempts at goal on his official Juventus debut but was unable to score, and coach Massimiliano Allegri has now commented on the Portuguese' performance.
The five-time Ballon d'or winner was named in the starting line-up for the Serie A champions but was unable to mark his debut with a goal.
Juve went on to win the match in dramatic fashion, with Federico Bernardeschi netting the winner in second-half stoppage-time.
“Ronaldo held out well physically, has only been training with us for seven days and did really well. It’s a pity he wasn’t able to score a goal," Allgeri was quoted as saying by FootballItalia.
“It depends on the characteristics of the players near him. Ronaldo had several shots on target today, Sorrentino made several saves, there were also some good movements that were not rewarded by the midfielders. Those are movements that must be read from the back with the ball provided in the right spot.
“I was most impressed that Ronaldo settled in to the team, he was very happy in the locker room and had his chances.
“The main problem tonight was we let the concentration levels drop and we simply cannot afford to do that.”
