Ex-Juventus player calls for Ronaldo to be rested in order to get back to top

Nicola Amoruso has called for Cristiano Ronaldo to be rested in order to get back to top form.

The former Juventus player was critical of the current Turin-based forward’s recent performances.

“For a while now, Cristiano Ronaldo has been dragging himself around the pitch,” Amoruso told Sky Italia.

“He should have the humility to understand that, at a certain age, it is more important to rest than to play.”

Amoruso, though, did go on to say that a well-rested Ronaldo can still be important.

“Managing his situation is complicated, but I am convinced that he can still make the difference,” he added.
