‘Not our problem’ – Blunt Juventus chief shows little sympathy to Cristiano Ronaldo over superstar’s Man Utd troubles
JUVENTUS CEO Maurizio Arrivabene says he feels sorry for benched Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo – but insists it’s not the Old Lady’s problem.
Ronaldo left Juve to seal a fairy tale return to Old Trafford last summer.
But the move hasn’t gone to plan for the 37-year-old.
Despite netting 18 Premier League goals last season, Ronaldo missed out on Champions League football alongside his team-mates as United limped over the line to a sixth placed finish.
Ronaldo then asked to leave United this summer in order to play in Europe’s top club competition.
But a move away failed to materialise and the 815-career goal man finds himself sat on new boss Erik ten Hag’s bench.
United have seen their form drastically improve with United out of the side, with Ten Hag keen to see more energy up front.
Juve CEO Arrivabene says he sympathises with Ronaldo, who left the Old lady on good terms, for his current situation.
But he also insists it’s no longer Juve’s problem.
He told DAZN: “We are sorry to see him in such a situation that is not pleasant for him and for the team.

“We separated ways at Juventus with mutual respect.
“We are sorry for what’s happened to him in Manchester this year, but it’s not our problem.”
