Patrice Evra: That’s why Cristiano Ronaldo left Juventus Turin
On Deadline Day, Cristiano Ronaldo left Juventus for Manchester United. Patrice Evra thinks she knows why.
Former French international Patrice Evra, former team-mate of Cristiano Ronaldo, has claimed that a lack of respect was the reason for the Portuguese’s departure from Juventus.
“He needs love and respect,” Evra told The Republic . “Ultimately, he realized that he was being scapegoated at Juventus for the poor results.”
Evra: Allegri about Ronaldo? “There is no reason to say such a thing in public”
Even public words from trainer returnee Massimiliano Allegri would have influenced Ronaldo in his decision. “Allegri’s words also played a role in Ronaldo’s departure,” Evra continued. “He said, ‘Ronaldo won’t play all the games.’ There is no need to say something like that in public, just keep it to yourself because Cristiano is deeply affected by such things. “
After three years in Turin, Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in the Premier League last Deadline Day. There he is currently with six goals after nine competitive games.
