Former Juventus striker Christian Vieri has made a huge prediction on Ronaldo’s Juventus future under Andrea Pirlo’s management.
The former Bianconeri star believes Andrea Pirlo ‘can win everything this season’ as the Juventus manager has Cristiano Ronaldo and many talented players on his team.
Vieri totally agrees with Zinedine Zidane’s famous quote about Ronaldo saying ‘when you play with Ronaldo on your team, you are already 1-0 up’, and the Italian now expects Cristiano Ronaldo to enjoy a lot more success in his career with Pirlo.
The rookie manager hasn’t had an easy start to life at the Allianz Stadium, but things have gradually improved since then as the season wore on. Pirlo has so far won 19 of his 28 games [D6 L3] in charge in Turin and overseen some promising progress. Interestingly, Juventus have kept a clean sheet in their last four games.
“Listen, Juventus can win anything every year. They have a fantastic side,” Christian Vieri told Stats Perform News.
“When you have Cristiano Ronaldo with you, you always start 1-0.
“Pirlo is a fun guy. He is the opposite of what everyone sees. He is a fun dude, he takes the p*ss out of you the whole day.
“Of course, everyone is different on TV, right? He is calmer. You never see him go crazy. He is the opposite of [Antonio] Conte. You see Conte, it’s like he is playing.
“It’s his first experience. He is having a good time. He won a trophy already. You win games and lose games, it’s part of coaching. Maybe lose more games than win, some coaches do that. But he is happy coaching, that’s what he wanted to do.
“He has an amazing team. He can win everything this season. Let’s see what happens. Nine years in a row winning the Scudetto, of course, sooner or later you will lose it because motivation-wise, you can’t have that motivation every year.”
Christian Vieri pulled up for the black and white in the 1996/97 campaign and helped the Old Lady win the Serie A, UEFA Super Cup, and Intercontinental Cup.
