Del Piero: Ronaldo is a very good free-kick taker and has a great record



During his illustrious career Alessandro Del Piero was an expert from dead ball situations.

Of the 290 goals that the former Juventus man scored, 42 of those came from free-kicks.

With Cristiano Ronaldo now the talisman in Turin, Del Piero was asked who was the better free-kick taker between himself and the Portuguese frontman.

“Cristiano is good at many things, and it could be that he is not training too much lately,” Del Piero joked.

“Ronaldo is a very good free-kick taker and has a great record in this aspect.

“I am happy for what he did (against Atletico).

“Now he must make Juventus fans happy and I hope that he scores many goals from free-kicks and in any other way, just as he is already doing,” Del Piero said during the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour of Heineken in Indonesia.
