Chiellini "If Cristiano Ronaldo had gone before, it was better for everyone"
Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini gave an interview to Italian journalist Diletta Leotta for DAZN, where he touched on Cristiano Ronaldo's point and spoke about the Portuguese's departure from Juventus.
"Cristiano left on August 28, it would have been much better for us if he had left earlier. Not at all easy to digest, this news always takes you by surprise, but in my opinion, we paid something in terms of points in the first commitments. If Cristiano had left on August 1, we would have had much more time to prepare better and have come to the championship a little more prepared. " Commented the defender of Vecchia Signora.
Likewise, the defender assures that he was not surprised by this news, if he was surprised because he thought it would not be so soon, but he knew that Cristiano Ronaldo needed new airs.
"He had reached a point where Cristiano Ronaldo needed new airs and to have a team that could play for him, because when he gets a team like this he becomes a decisive player and at Juventus he didn't have it", said Chiellini.
One of the goals of Vecchia Signora is to rejuvenate the squad, which has many veteran players.
This decision by the club could also have become a turning point for the Portuguese to want to leave Turin: "Juventus already has a rejuvenation and restart program, which is already underway. It is clear that if Ronaldo continued in the club would only have been an added value, and we would have exploited it with pleasure, but he could also decide to go to a team where he had a present and a future and I think he has done so".
