Former Juventus goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon in an interview admitted that Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo ‘rightly thinks about himself a lot”.
Buffon who was a former teammate to Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus stated that the footballer’s exit from the Serie A club should not be a surprise to fans at all.
“I don’t think the fans should be surprised. He has the reputation of a great professional who rightly thinks about himself a lot.
“In these three years he has contributed with great performances and scored many goals. I don’t see anything illogical in his choice to leave, he thought a lot about it.
“Juve are in a transition period, I don’t know if it’s generational or the skeleton. You pay a bit when these things happen. When you have a coach like [Massmiliano] Allegri, maybe you don’t reach the target, but you get close to it.” The Legendary goalkeeper stated.
Ronaldo has been accused of leaving Juve in the lurch, with a second stint at Old Trafford agreed late in the summer transfer window, but Buffon claims to have no issue with an all-time great dictating where and when he does things.
