According to substitute goalkeeper Carlo Pinsoglio, Cristiano Ronaldo’s bad free-kick record at Juventus is mostly bad luck. The 31-year-old explained that in an interview with Tuttosport. He also talked about his friendship with the five-time world footballer and praised Ronaldo for his down-to-earth attitude.
Ronaldo took a total of 72 free kicks in his two and a half years in Turin, only converting one. As Pinsoglio pointed out, this is not due to a lack of practice: “Cristiano always takes free kicks in training and converts them all the time,” said the Italian, adding: “I don’t know why he can’t do it in games, maybe it’s just Bad luck.”
Ronaldo and Pinsoglio don’t just get along well on the pitch. This is how the two of them “have a nice friendship”: “My teammates make fun of me and say that I will go to the euro with the Portuguese staff and Cristiano,” said Pinsoglio and emphasized: “Ronaldo is a simple guy, not a star he is calm, he likes to laugh and joke. “
Ronaldo is currently going through a difficult season with Juventus. Although Ronaldo has already scored 23 goals in 24 Serie A appearances, the Bianconeri ten points separate the leaders Inter Milan and they were eliminated in the Champions League against FC Porto.
Juve Vice President Pavel Nedved recently emphasized that Ronaldo Juve will remain in the coming season. Pinsoglio is also not expecting a CR7 change if nothing “strange” happens: “He still has one year of contract. I hope and think he will stay.”
