Compilation Of Juventus’ Defensive Mistakes ‘Proves’ Cristiano Ronaldo Has Been Let Down By His Team

Cristiano Ronaldo has been staunchly defended against criticisms over his impact this season as one fan has highlighted how he has been ‘let down’ by Juventus’ defence.

The 36-year-old Portuguese superstar has been in superb goalscoring form this season as he has taken his tally to 34 in 41 appearances across all competitions.

However, Juventus have already conceded the Serie A title to Inter Milan and are now in a nail-biting race for a top-four finish after their 3-0 defeat to AC Milan on Sunday.

Ronaldo has been heavily criticised over his defensive input for Juventus this season, which included his costly error against Porto in the Champions League round of 16.

Both former England manager Fabio Capello and Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero slammed the five-time Ballon d’Or winner after he turned his back in the free-kick wall.

Ronaldo’s actions in the wall were further spotlighted last month after he bizarrely ducked and covered his face during Gaston Brugman’s free-kick for Parma.

Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo even admitted that the former Real Madrid superstar could be pulled from the Old Lady’s free-kick wall after his repeated mistakes.

One fan-made Twitter account has highlighted the various mistakes that Juventus have made during their lacklustre Serie A title defence.

And the video attempted to disperse the idea that Ronaldo is the scapegoat for Juventus’ defensive woes this season.

Juventus are currently fifth in Serie A and are one point behind fourth-place Napoli and three points behind third-place Milan.

Pirlo’s men will face Sassuolo, Inter and Bologna in their final three Serie A fixtures as they push for Champions League qualification for next season.

However, Juventus have been warned by Italian Football Association president Gabriele Gravina to drop their commitment to the European Super League to avoid expulsion from Serie A next season.
