Ronaldo is injured, won’t play against Atlanta- Pirlo

Hopefully, Ronaldo would be available on wednesday

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo has confirmed that prominent footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is injured and won’t be available to take part in the match coming up against Atlanta.

According to Pirlo, Ronaldo getting injured was due to the rigorous playing time which he had with the national team and as a result, will definitely add to the number of days he will use on the sidelines.

Atlanta, who currently sits comfortably at 4th on the Italian Serie A table, while trailing Juventus with a point difference will be at home on Sunday while looking forward to closing the point difference and hoping to qualify for the next season champions league with only eight games left.

According to Pirlo, while speaking at a press conference, he said

We all have one goal in mind, to finish as high as possible. We tightened up after Benevento and Torino, we are a lot of points behind Inter but we want to finish the season in the best possible way.

We are happy that we are gradually thinking of a return to the stadiums for fans. It’s good for everyone and a good message not only for football because it means that the global situation is improving.

Beyond that, he spoke about the availability of some exceptional Juventus players who will be available for tomorrow’s match and also about Ronaldo who got injured after Juventus’s last match.

After Covid, Bonucci has been doing specific work to get back to top form. Cristiano played more than was expected in the national team, otherwise, he would have returned earlier.

The accumulation of fatigue is a problem for everyone. Both Arthur Melo and WMckennie are fine and are in contention for tomorrow.

Emphasizing Ronaldo’s injury, Pirlo made it known that the prolific footballer suffered from a flexo injury and hopefully, argentine footballer, Dybala would start tomorrow.

Ronaldo’s flexor problem happened after the last game and he wasn’t able to push himself this week as he saw fit. We prefer not to take risks, so tomorrow will start.

Furthermore, Pirlo didn’t forget to talk about the effort the Juventus team has made to make sure they secure the win tomorrow.

We’ve worked well this week, analyzing the play and the characteristics of Atlanta, thinking about the counter-measures for their ferocious pressure. I’m happy with the work and confident for tomorrow.
