Once again, appears Pirlo’s job at Juventus might be on the line. However, Cristiano Ronaldo will be eager to save his manager.
Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Turin after reporting for international duty with Portugal.
Fresh from scoring against Luxembourg, CR7 will be hoping to carry on with more of the same for Juventus.
Now more than ever, Andrea Pirlo will be hopeful his star forward does bang in the goals. Why though?
As per a recent report by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Andrea Pirlo will be sacked if Juventus pick up negative results against Torino and Napoli.
Juventus currently sit third in the Serie A standings, ten points off leaders Inter. It is an unfamiliar situation for the Bianconeri at this stage of the season. However, Juventus can still end the season on a positive note if they finish strongly and win the Coppa Italia final.
The latest report means Pirlo will be counting on his stars to bail him out of his current situation.
For Ronaldo, firing more goals could be double victory for the Portuguese, Asides bailing his manager out, this might be CR7’s best chance to win his first top-scorer award since he moved to Italy.
The ex-Real Madrid man has a habit of coming up big when needed the most.
With Pirlo’s job on the line and Juve badly in need of positive results, you can count on Ronaldo to save the day, improve his goal tally and also save his manager in the process.
