Cristiano Ronaldo is back in Turin after reporting for international duty with Portugal. But it has appeared that Pirlo’s job at Juventus might be on the line. However, Cristiano Ronaldo will be eager to save Andrea Pirlo’s job at Juventus.
Fresh from scoring against Luxembourg, Cristiano will be hoping to carry on with more of the same for the Bianconeri. Moreover, his Juve manager Andrea Pirlo will be hopeful Ronaldo does bang in the goals, now more than ever.
According to a recent report by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Andrea Pirlo will be sacked if Juventus pick up negative results against Torino and Napoli.
Currently, the Serie A holders sit third in the Serie A standings, ten points off leaders Inter Milan. It’s quite an unfamiliar situation for the Old Lady at this stage of the season, though. But the Turin giants can still end the season on a positive note if they finish strongly and win the Coppa Italia final.
However, the latest report means Andrea Pirlo will be counting on his stars to bail him out of his current situation.
For Ronaldo, firing more goals could be a double victory for the Portuguese, asides bailing his manager out, this might be Cris’ best chance to win his first top-scorer award since his move to Italy, three years ago.
After all, the ex-Real Madrid star has a habit of coming up big when needed most. And with Pirlo’s job on the line and Juve badly in need of positive results, you can count on the talisman to save the day, improve his goal tally, and also save his manager in the process.
