Juventus manager admits that he turned his back on Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty

Juventus have achieved their much-needed victory in the Derby della Mole with the decisive penalty goal by Cristiano Ronaldo at Torino.  But, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri now admits that he did not have the nerve to watch the Portuguese international taking the penalty for the Bianconeri boys.

Right after host’s goalkeeper Salvador Ichazo brought down Mario Mandzukic, Juventus had their chance to get all three points. And, Cristiano Ronaldo took the decisive penalty and converted into a beautiful goal to finally seal full points in the Italian Serie A derby match. Besides, he also scored his 11th goal in White and Black jersey with that penalty.

While talking about Cristiano Ronaldo’s winning goal against Torino, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri told DAZN “I didn’t see the penalty, as I turned my back to it. I very rarely watch the penalties, to be honest.” His side is now standing at the top of the Italian Serie A table and Allegri already declared Cristiano Ronaldo a great professional.

The Juventus manager said “I had asked the team to make a sacrifice. It was not likely to be a game with lots of goals.” He said “When Torino’s tempo fell, we took control of the game,” and then further added “The fact that in the second half we were growing means that we are physically well.”

While talking about his full-power penalty strike at the derby, Cristiano Ronaldo himself told DAZN “The keeper did well but I shot the ball with a lot of power, which is why I scored,” and then further added, “It wasn’t easy but we did well and we deserved to win.”

Torino manager Walter Mazzarri, on the other hand, told DAZN “Congratulations to my boys, they are giving me great satisfaction,” and then further added “I do not know, tell me if it is a penalty or not. Maybe the referee could go [to the monitor] and see it with his own eyes.”
