At Juve, Ronaldo was becoming the scapegoat - Patrice Evra

Fri 29 October 2021 | 11:01

In the final hours of the summer transfer window, Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United after 12 years, but his former colleague Patrice Evra believes that the Portuguese superstar has not been treated well in Italy.

"

Cristiano needs love and respect,

" Evra told La Repubblica. "

Instead, at Juve, he was becoming the scapegoat

.

"The criticisms in Italy have been ridiculous and a bit hypocritical. [It was a] mistake when [Massimiliano] Allegri said: 'Cristiano will not play all the games'. There is no need to say things in public. In any case, Cristiano's only true love is Manchester United."

Like Cristiano Ronaldo, Evra continued his career with a move to Juventus and worked under Allegri. But he believes that Italian teams do not keep the balance.

"

He has an incredible flair,"

he added.

"More than [Sir Alex] Ferguson. Allegri always knows how a game will go before it starts. [But] in Italy you train too much

.

"If the right balance were found, the Italian teams could often win the Champions League. Instead, it pushes everything to the extreme. For me it is a sign of insecurity."
