Thu 18 February 2021 | 11:52

Fabio Capello believes Juventus's loss against Porto is due to their lack of focus and Antonio Cassano thinks that Cristiano Ronaldo’s selfishness is part of the problem.

Although

Federico Chiesa

’s goal for

Juventus

in the 82nd minute of the game against

Porto

gave the Bianconeri some hope, they ultimately lost 2-1.

Fabio Capello

believes their loss is because of thier lack of focus which is unacceptable in a game against such a strong opponent in the last 16 of the Champions League.

“Entering the pitch without concentration is unacceptable, there was too much superficiality,” Capello told Sky Sport Italia after the match.

“Bentancur made a huge mistake in the first half and in the second half, eight defenders were not alert against three Porto players.

“This can’t happen.”

He added:

“Juventus lacked ideas, [Federico] Chiesa and [Dejan] Kulusevski came too deep to get the ball.

“The player who does what Morata does was missing, and it became clear when he entered. We must underline that Porto played their game, as it immediately went well for them.”

Former Italy international

Antonio Cassano

believes

Cristiano Ronaldo

does not fit with Andrea Pirlo's ideas as the Portuguese talisman does not care about others scoring goals and is a bit selfish.

“I have always said, considering that he’s a phenomenon and has scored a billion goals, that it could be difficult with Andrea Pirlo’s idea of football,” Cassano told Bobo TV.

“He scores a goal per game, it’s true, but struggles with the ideas of Andrea. He has always been a bit selfish, he doesn’t care about others scoring goals, he’s the kind of player who lives to score.

“He doesn’t live for the play, the great match, he lives for the goal, and at this moment, the situation is getting worse.

“Years go by for everyone and he is having difficulties. Juventus are trying to change their ideas and play a different type of football, due to the qualities of Ronaldo.”
