Former Juventus president, Giovanni Cobolli Gigli says the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo has been a failure.
The Portuguese great is being hammered in the local Italian media today for his role in Juve’s Champions League elimination by Porto.
“Ronaldo was a wrong signing, absolutely,” Cobolli Gigli told Radio Punto Nuovo.
“I had said it on his very first day at Juventus. He is a great champion, but he is too expensive.
“Now it’s up to Juventus. They’ve been paying him €1m per goal. Agnelli must be self-critical, but he doesn’t have great collaborators.
“I don’t blame Pirlo. I hired Ferrara and it was not a positive experience. Agnelli took a risk with him. He didn’t want Sarri, but he accepted him because Paratici and Nedved had pushed to hire him. Juventus need to rebuild now”.
