After Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Roma, Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo was amazed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s attitude.
A Tuttosport article talked about how after going down to 10 men due to Rabiot’s red card, the Portuguese star ran a lot and sacrificed himself to help the team.
Pirlo praised him for that:” Cristiano ran a lot after we went down to 10 men, he knew what he he had to do and was a great help for his teammates and we’re glad to have him.”
A message sent by Andrea to his players that everyone must be like Ronaldo, not technically of course, but rather in terms of attitude and mentality.
Juve might need sometime to find their tactical personality with their new manager, but the idea of spirit is the one that can be applied instantly.
Everyone must fight and sacrifice themselves for the team and in this case, Cristiano did well to lead by exemple, not only scoring the equaliser, but also helping his teammates defensively.
