Cristiano Ronaldo at the age of 35 looks stronger and more combative than ever. With the two goals he scored on Saturday (19/12) at Enio Tardini «against Parma (4-0 final score) he reached 41 in a calendar year. He managed to have 33 goals in the league for the whole year, something that was achieved by Omar Sivori, another great striker who played with great success at Juventus.
The nice thing about the case is that Sivori retired from football on December 20, 1968 at the age of 33. It was a great talent for the Italian-Argentine who wore the jersey of Juventus and Napoli and then chose to return to his homeland Argentina.
In fact, on December 1, as a Napoli footballer, he was the protagonist, against Juventus in San Paolo (now as he is known, he was renamed Diego Armando Maradona). This game ended with a 2-1 victory of the Partenopei but marked Sivori. He had reacted harshly to a foul, which cost him his deportation, after he was punished with a heavy bell: 6 games out of action.
On December 20, the decision of the sports judge was confirmed and Sivori made his decision after previously winning 4 championships, 3 Italian cups and 2 Alpine Cups to leave Italy. A little earlier in 1961, Sivori had won the Golden Ball as the top European footballer, the largest and noblest award at the individual level.
In any case, we return to Cristiano Ronaldo who is the «Portuguese phenomenon» and this current season (2020-21) has scored 16 goals so far, which are divided into 12 in the league and 4 in the UEFA Champions League.
Typically, the Corriere dello Sport of Turin wrote: «Ronaldo has no limits«.
And everyone recognizes that the two goals scored by Cristiano Ronaldo were decisive for the Bianconeri, where the other two goals were scored by Kulusevski with Morata (2nd and 4th). Now Juventus is just one point away from the top and is preparing to go even further. higher, claiming the top spot from the leaderboard.
Andrea Pirlo deifies his players
After the 4-0 win over Parma, Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo spoke to JTV: «The best match of the season? One of the best, I also really liked Wednesday’s match against Atalanta. Unfortunately they weren’t taken. the three points, however, the attitude and the football played against the Bergamo team was right.
Tonight perhaps also thanks to the anger for the two points lost we managed to play a great game. Ferocity to go and recover the ball? we have been working on since the beginning, the desire to recover the ball quickly, the first attacks already made by the attackers on the ball lost ball must be immediate and slowly they are entering the head of every player.
We always manage to recover the ball in their half field and this then allows us to have mastery of the game – reports TuttoJuve.com -. Kulusevski? I liked it, I’m happy for him, because maybe he had been a bit on the sidelines in recent pa rtite, but he is a 20 year old boy, he needed to free his head a little too.
When it comes to Juventus, the responsibilities are many. He had started very well, then maybe even a little tired, with the matches, with the national teams, he was in a bit of trouble, but at the right moment we put him back on the pitch and he proved to be the player we bought this. summer.
He is a boy who can still grow a lot, he can become a mezzala, an all-round player, but he is doing very well. It is a midfield that is doing better, he is in good tactic, physically they are growing a lot, Bentancur is playing at his level, finally, after some recovery time due to the many games played last year. Mckennie was taken for the player that he is. Then let’s not forget Aaron that when he is well he always manages to make us play well. «
