Giorgio Chiellini on playing with Al-Nassr superstar Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus

Former Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini recently spoke about how it was playing with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus. The duo shared the pitch 55 times after the latter moved to the Italian side from Real Madrid in 2018 and even had two goal combinations.

In a recent interview on FIFA’s website, Chiellini hailed Ronaldo’s dedication and determination, saying (via Goal):

“Cristiano was a very demanding guy, who always wanted to win, and he managed to convey that to everyone. He wanted to score, break all the records and always win, which he continues to do even now. That’s Cristiano and he’s exactly as you see him.”You can get to know people without experiencing them, but there were so many little things [with him] – like his dedication to small things everyday – that made it a privilege for me to have played with him for three years.”

Cristiano Ronaldo made 134 appearances for Juventus, scoring 101 goals and providing 22 assists. He helped them win two Serie A titles, among other trophies, before leaving in 2021.
