Massimiliano Allegri Juventus coach hails Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘extraordinary goal’

TURIN- being on the losing side as a coach is hard enough but Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri there was little else they could do but admire Cristiano Ronaldo’s “extraordinary goal” during last night game, the first leg of the Champions League quarter final in Turin Italy.

Juventus lost at home 3-0 to the defending champions after two goals from Ronaldo and Marcelo wrapping up a star performance from Los Blancos’.

Allegri mentioned the biggest talking point of the match, Ronaldo’s superb overhead kick, “I don’t know if Cristiano’s goal is the best in the history of football but it’s certainly an extraordinary goal. You can only congratulate him for what he’s doing at present,”

“However, I am disappointed about the third goal, because at that point we still could have turned the tie in the second leg. Now it will be impossible.”

He added, “When you play against sides like this, you need a little bit of luck and, more than anything else, to meet Ronaldo on a bad night,”

‘I am disappointed with the third goal because we should have tried to keep it down to 2-0 and then try to achieve something remarkable in Madrid.”

Madrid coach Ziane Zidane was happy with his team performance, he said, “It was a great game – it’s not easy to win 3-0 here. We suffered a bit at times, but that’s because you have to suffer here. Going forward, though, we always know how to cause teams problems,” Zidane said after his return to Turin. “Cristiano is in good form at the moment. His team-mates are very happy with him. We need to enjoy tonight, but then think about the hard work ahead of next week because Juve won’t give up.”
