Ciro Ferrara: 'Ronaldo won't score as much'

Post by Bethel » Sat Sep 01, 2018 2:34 pm

Legendary defender Ciro Ferrara is confident Cristiano Ronaldo “won’t get more than 30 goals” this season for Juventus. “It’s different in Italy.”

There were bets being made on the former Real Madrid star shattering the all-time Serie A record, having scored 26 in 27 Liga games last season, with 15 goals in 13 Champions League appearances.

“I think he’ll get maximum 25-26 goals this season, but certainly fewer than he’s accustomed to scoring in Spain,” Ferrara told Il Corriere di Torino newspaper.

“He won’t get more than 30 goals, in my view. It’s different in Italy and I am not saying that just because of the defenders we have here, but also the style of football. It’s more tactical and even the smaller teams are more organised.

“Having said that, you cannot criticise Ronaldo, as he is a phenomenon and a great professional. This is why it makes me smile to see this apprehension over when he’ll score his first goal.”

Juve take on Parma this evening and there are reports Paulo Dybala will be dropped to the bench again.

“I think at this moment it’s more an issue of finding the right tactical shape. Dybala can’t really play wide in a 4-3-3, while if you go 4-2-3-1 then it means removing a midfielder. Miralem Pjanic does far better with three in the middle.

“As is only natural, Massimiliano Allegri is studying his players and trying to find the right system. He proved over the years that he has always excelled at this aspect of coaching.”
