Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo has labelled Cristiano Ronaldo as a ‘real champion’ after the superstar supplied the goods once again to lead his side to victory against Cagliari in Serie A on Saturday.
Pirlo reckons that Ronaldo is a ‘real champion’ and an ‘example for everyone’ as he shares his one bit of advice for his star player – to keep it going.
Cristiano Ronaldo’ brace in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Cagliari brings the forward’s tally for the season up to eight goals in only five Serie A games. The Portuguese were also brilliant throughout the encounter, laying out three chances for his teammates to score, making two recoveries, and also winning five duels.

“He is a great professional, as we already knew,” Pirlo told DAZN about his star forward.
“He is a real champion and sets the example for everyone around him, both in the matches and in training.”
“The only advice I can give him is to keep going in the same way,” adds the rookie boss.
It was a dominant all-round display for Juventus and Ronaldo and couldn’t have been more welcome after winning just one of their previous four league games.
Juventus even saw a goal from Federico Bernardeschi ruled out for offside, but Ronaldo’s brace was more than enough to hand the Bianconeri all three points in the end. Pirlo’s men continue to trail the league’s leaders AC Milan with four points after they saw off Napoli 3-1 away from home on Sunday night.
