Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri reveals coronavirus hit Cristiano Ronaldo badly

The 35-year-old has been heavy criticised for some poor displays since the restart of football after the coronavirus outbreak.

However, the former Manchester United star put up a breathtaking performance in Juventus’ 4-0 defeat of Lecce on Friday, June 26.

Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain and Matthijs de Ligt all got their names on the scoresheet as the Old Lady were unstoppable against Lecce at the Allianz Stadium.

According to Sarri, Ronaldo is gradually getting back to his best but needs to be more patient adding that he will know when it’s time to quit.

Sarri said: “He had a difficult time on a personal and global level, because the coronavirus emergency hit him a lot and left a mark on him.

“He needs to improve after the break and he is doing so match after match.

“He is great in listening to himself and he will realise when he will need to stop and rest. But now I think he fits quite well.”
