Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed he has spoken regularly with Cristiano Ronaldo to help the superstar play in his preferred role.

Cristiano Ronaldo has never truly discovered the form that made him the superstar we all know and love from his time at Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Much of his lack of form was put down to the first season in a new league last year. Then prior to the lockdown he was displaying signs of his old self.

However, since the return from lockdown, he has played twice. Missed a penalty in one game and deemed one of the worst players on the pitch in the other.

Much has been made about the Portuguese record holder fitting into Sarri’s system.

Now the Italian tactician who it is said could be fighting for his Bianconeri future between now and the end of the season reveals he has spoken to CR7 regularly about how he can best fit in the side.

According to the club’s official website, the pair have been in discussions.

Sarri said:

“I talked to him before Milan. I talked to him before the Coppa Italia final against Napoli.”

“Again yesterday I talked to him alone for a long time.”

“He is a player who scored 700 goals by starting from the left side, it is clear that his preference is that.”

While the GOAT may be in a slump right now, he still holds some phenomenal records. Why not test your knowledge?
