Juve Boss On Ronaldo's Goalless Run

With superstar Cristiano Ronaldo having drawn yet another blank for Juventus past this weekend, his manager has now spoken about his goal troubles since arriving in Italy.

Ramos On How CR7 Announced He Wanted To Leave Real

The 33-year-old was left frustrated once again following the Bianconeri's 2-1 Serie A win at Parma on Saturday, and is yet to break his duck for his new club.

After the match, Massimiliano Allegri suggested that it is perhaps more difficult to find the back of the net as regularly in Italy than it is in Spain due to the strong and organised defences of the teams.

"Italian football presents different problems and it takes time," he said, according to the Daily Metro.

"He's not getting the rub of the green at the moment either – the ball is not bouncing right for him or he's shooting just off target.

"We'll all be fresher after the break and that's when the real season starts.

"Serie A is a league where the teams defend carefully. I don't want to say that it's better than other leagues in Europe or not. Let's just say that the teams are very strong in defence and the coaches are very good.

"They study every match to try not to concede space to the other teams. Everyone puts Serie A down but it's very difficult for a player to score 40 goals a season.

"Gonzalo Higuain did it once, but was an extraordinary feat. Usually the top scorer in Italy scores 26 or 27 goals. And usually the top scorer in Italy never wins the title. So maybe it's better for us."

'Ronaldo Should've Copied Messi'

Ronaldo has now gone 23 shots without a goal since joining Juve, although it is difficult to imagine his goalless streak continuing for much longer.

How long do you think Ronaldo will need to adjust to Italian football? Let us know in the comments section below.
