Cristiano Ronaldo has only had Andrea Pirlo as a coach at Juventus for one season. Whether or not he defends the ‘bianconera’ shirt, the Portuguese star wanted to pay his particular tribute to the young Italian coach, dismissed by the board on Friday just nine months after trusting him to start his career on the bench.
While many of his teammates said goodbye to Pirlo on Friday, it was today that Cristiano Ronaldo, concentrated with the Portuguese team in Oeiras (outside Lisbon), has dedicated a few words to the one who has been his coach in the disappointing season with Juventus .
“Thank you Master, it has been an honor to have been trained by you!” Wrote CR7 on Instagram. A concise message that has been accompanied by an applause emoticon.
Before, players like Gianluigi Buffon, Leonardo Bonucci, Álvaro Morata, Paulo Dybala, Matthijs de Ligt, Arthur Melo, Juan Cuadrado, Dejan Kulusevski, Alex Sandro, Danilo or Weston McKennie expressed their gratitude to Pirlo and wished him luck in the future through social networks.
