Ronaldo termed the future of Juventus
The Italian giants will turn their attention to the Serie A after being knocked out of the Champions League by Ajax on Tuesday night. The former Real Madrid ace scored home and away against the Dutch side, who went through on the away goals rule, but while acknowledging that the 34-year-old’s brilliance alone was not enough, manager Allegri predicted he will lead the fight once again next season.
“Cristiano is the future of Juventus. He did very well this year and will do so the next. Of course, he is disappointed, like all of us are, but he’s calm about it," he told the press conference.
Juve, who are 17 points clear of second-placed Napoli with six games remaining, passed up the opportunity to win the title last weekend when they were beaten 2-1 at SPAL, and Allegri wants to leave no margin for error this time around.
