'We Didn't Have A Superstar Like Ronaldo'

A former Inter Milan treble winner and Premier League star insists that the current Juventus squad cannot be compared to Jose Mourinho's historic treble-winning outfit of 2010, because they "didn't have a superstar like Cristiano Ronaldo".

Cambiasso formed part of the historic Serie A outfit, which remains the only Italian side to have won the Serie A, Coppa Italia and UEFA Champions League titles in the same season.

When quizzed about Ronaldo's Juventus outfit and the differences between Mourinho's 2010 squad and Massimiliano Allegri's current Juventus side, the former Leicester City star insisted that no parallels could be drawn between the two teams.

"I could put my arm around my teammates to fire them up before big games, but I certainly couldn’t score three goals." he told Sky Sport Italia.

"We didn’t have a superstar like Cristiano Ronaldo or (Lionel) Messi: they’re two unique players who make the difference.

"Instead we had a player like (Samuel) Eto’o, who came after winning the treble with Barcelona.

"Unlike Juve we didn’t make any comebacks, but knocking out Chelsea gave us awareness at a time when it was impossible for us to go through.

"The parallels between us and Juve aren’t there."

Four-time African Player of the Year winner Eto became the first player to clinch two successive European trebles after achieving the feat with Barcelona in 2009, before repeating the achievement in Italy a year later with Inter.
