Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado has his full support for the head coach Andrea Pirlo and referred to the importance of having a player like Cristiano Ronaldo in the team.

Juan Cuadrado

was the host of an online meeting with the Liceo Scientifico S.Anna’s students and touched on various subjects.

The Colombian experienced a difficult time at the beginning of the New Year as he tested positive for Covid-19.

“I was calm, I was asymptomatic, and I could train anyway. It was hard because I could not help my teammates. I rested physically and mentally,”

he claimed

.

The season for the Old Lady has not been as expected and they are currently sitting third in the Serie A table and they will face

Torino

this weekend.

“Pirlo is doing a great job. It’s not easy to join a top club. There have been many changes, and we need to have patience.

“We lost some points, and that’s why we are in this position. Now we must earn as many points as possible and try to reach a Champions League placement. The Coppa Italia Final is also crucial for us.

“We hope we can win the derby. We must have no fear. We are training to get the best possible result.”

The winger spoke about the influence of

Cristiano Ronaldo

and admitted he did not believe that he could have joined

Juventus

.

“He is a great professional. You can only learn by working with him. He is a model for what he does in every game and every training session.

“I didn’t believe he could have joined Juventus. Now I am happy he is part of the team. I used to wear the No. 7 before he arrived, but I gave it to him without any problem. Playing is what matters. It’s better to give than to receive.”
