Juventus full-back Danilo speaks on Italian television about the state of mind of his team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, recalling that the team must come before individual performances.
Cristiano Ronaldo too individualistic? For Sky Italia, Danilo returned to the self-centered side of the Portuguese striker: “Cristiano is like that, it’s not new. He was like that in Madrid, he has always been like that, here too: he needs to score to be happier, he gets angry when he doesn’t score. He still has that motivation even though he has scored a lot in his career, but he still wants to keep doing it. “
“Cristiano knows that the team’s goal comes first”
“However, Cristiano knows that the goal of the team takes priority over his personal goals. The day after each match, he is already focused on winning the next game,” tempers the Brazilian defender. Since the start of the season, the five-time Ballon d’Or has accumulated 32 goals in 38 matches in all competitions.
As a reminder, Juventus does not have much to play at the end of the season beyond the Italian Cup final (on May 19, against Atalanta). The Bianconeri were taken out of the Champions League by Porto in the round of 16 and are left behind by Inter in the Serie A title race.
The Champions League not yet assured
But Juve will still need a CR7 in great shape to validate their qualification for the next C1. Six days from the end of the championship, the Old Lady is third in her championship, with two small points ahead of Naples, fifth and first non-qualified for the moment.
On the sidelines of this intervention, Danilo also evoked the theme of the Super League, without getting too wet (“I do not know if this project would have been the right solution”) but defending it half-heartedly: “If the 12 clubs have accepted this new project because they have developed a need for change (…), it is normal to talk about change to save football. “
