Bruno: Cristiano Ronaldo Has no Respect for his Teammates

on

Cristiano Ronaldo has been labelled as ‘ignorant’ as well as lacking respect for his Juventus teammates and Italians in general. This is coming from former Juventus defender, Pasquale Bruno who has not been impressed with the attitude of the Portuguese.

Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus in the summer of 2018, ending a 9-year spell with Spanish giants, Real Madrid. The Portuguese claimed at the time that he was in search of a new challenge and chose Italy.

Although many thought he had gone to Italy to retire, the 35-year-old has shown he can still play at his best and has shown no signs of slowing down since his arrival, helping the Bianconeri retain and win back-to-back Serie A titles.

His success on the pitch, however, did not stop former Juventus defender, Pasquale Bruno from lashing out at the forward who just recovered from Coronavirus.

Bruno believes that Ronaldo’s inability to speak Italian after two years in the country is a lack of respect to the rest of the Juventus squad and the whole Italian nation as well as its citizens.

“He is ignorant,” the 58-year-old said during an appearance on Tiki Taka. “He has been in Italy for two years and has not yet learned to speak our language. He uses Spanish to express himself. He has no respect for his team-mates or for the Italians.”

Nevertheless, Ronaldo’s teammate, Juan Cuadrado during a recent Champions League pre-match press conference defended him saying that the attacker is a model professional who helps improve the team.

“Ronaldo is very happy, he couldn’t wait to come back and play,” the Colombian said.

“You saw that from the moment he stepped onto the pitch [against Spezia] .

“He’s an extra weapon for us. We all know what he gives to the team. He is very confident and that helps us too, passing on the professionalism and desire to win that we all ought to have.”
