Ronaldo says Juventus cannot accept “anything less than excellence”

Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo said today that Juventus cannot accept “anything less than excellence” after the Italian champions were defeated at home by Fiorentina 3-0 on Tuesday.

"With a poor performance and a result far from acceptable, we ended our 2020 calendar, a special year for several reasons. Empty stadiums, protocols against the covid-19, postponed games, long stops and a very tight schedule, ”said Ronaldo on his social networks. The team had not yet lost in the championship, in 13 games, but ended up receiving a 'bitter' gift from the 'viola' formation, leaving the Turin men seven points behind leader AC Milan.

Cristiano Ronaldo refuses to find any excuse for the outcome of the match, saying that Juventus have to give more on the pitch. “We know that we have to give more of ourselves, in order to play better and win more consistently. We are Juventus, and we cannot accept anything less than excellence on the pitch, ”he added.

The Portuguese striker also said that he hopes the festive break will allow the team to return “stronger and more united than ever”. “This season is far from over and we believe that in the end we will win, once again, and celebrate with our fans. Believe us, trust our team, just as we trust you ”, he concluded.
