Fabio Paratici wants Italy to appreciate the fact that a player of Cristiano Ronaldo’s caliber is in their presence.

The Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Paratici was a key figure in putting together the deal that brought Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

Paratici wanted a player that could take the Bianconeri to the next level both on and off the football field.

His decision to invest 100 million Euros in a then 33-year-old player was considered by many insanity.

However, it has proven to be nothing less than a stroke of genius off the field.

Now should they succeed in this season’s Champions League, he will be nothing less than a hero.

Speaking to Sky Sports Italia, Paratici admits having Ronaldo on their side is an advantage, but he wants all Italians to appreciate the presence of greatness too.

He said:

“Ronaldo?”

“Cristiano is the best player of all time, having an advantage in our team.”

“I say that in Italy we often forget to have such a champion in our league.”

“We will have to enjoy it more everyone .”
