Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly regrets joining Juventus in 2018. The Portuguese star signed a two-and-a-half-year agreement with Al Nassr.
Relevo claims Ronaldo regrets leaving Real Madrid for Juventus. He scored 101 goals in 134 appearances for the Italian club but was unhappy with his teammates, despite winning two Serie A titles in his three years there.
Relevo said Ronaldo thought the team lacked synergy, which hurt them in the UEFA Champions League. During his time at the club, Italy was desperate to capture the European title.
Why did Cristiano Ronaldo join Juventus?
Cristiano Ronaldo quit Real Madrid because he felt unappreciated. He said he wasn’t treated like a superstar at the Bernabeu, and Juventus agreed.
2018 interview with France Football:
“I felt inside the club, especially from the president, that they no longer saw me the same. I felt like ‘Cristiano Ronaldo’ for the first four or five years there. Then less. The president’s gaze said I was no longer indispensable, if you know what I mean.”
“So I considered leaving. Sometimes I’d read that I’d asked to go. I had the idea the president wouldn’t hold me back. If it were just money, I’d have relocated to China, where I’d make five times as much as at Juventus or Real. Not for the money, I joined Juve. If anything, I made more in Madrid. Juve wanted me more.”
Cristiano Ronaldo said Perez wanted him to stay but wasn’t willing to try hard. “The president wanted me, but he said my leaving wouldn’t be an issue,” he said.
He rejoined Manchester United in 2021 but was released in 2022.
