The Juventus coach highlighted the Portuguese’s ability to stay on top physically and mentally.
Cristiano Ronaldo comes from achieving an unprecedented record in Europe after reaching his 50th goal in A series and become the first player to reach that number in both the Italian league and the Spanish League and the Premier League.
Likewise, CR7 is not satisfied and now he plans to keep the title of the season’s top scorer in Italy. That way of living soccer satisfies his coach, Maurizio Sarri, more than any other.
“That is part of his strength: the ability to quickly regain physical and emotional energy and fix his eyes immediately on his next goal. It allows him to go beyond fatigue,” said the Italian coach in the pre-crash against Udinese of this Thursday.
In addition, the former Chelsea coach assured that Cristiano has not asked to take a breather despite playing all the games since soccer returned. “I spoke to him 10 minutes ago and he said he was in good shape,” said Sarri.
Ronaldo comes from scoring two goals in the win over Lazio on Monday. Sarri believes that the team showed positive signs and highlighted the good moment that the pair of forwards that make up CR7 and Paulo Dybala are going through.
“It is evident that we can play much better and have a wide margin for improvement. I do not see that it is a bad thing to have high-level players like Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala sharing the field,” he clarified.
Juventus are one step away from buttoning their ninth consecutive Scudetto, however, Sarri prefers to take things slow. “I am a sports man, which means saying ‘almost’ doesn’t mean anything. We know we need to score four points, which is difficult at the moment,” he said.
“We have to focus on one game at a time, think of Udinese, then Sampdoria, live in the moment and remain fully aware that this is a difficult period for everyone,” he concluded.
