    My job is to bang goals, not to defend – Ronaldo

    Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo has retaliated against those who have questioned his defensive performances at Juventus.

    Cristiano Ronaldo, the Manchester United striker, has responded to criticism that he lacks defensive responsibilities in his game. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner remarked that his major role as a member of a team is to score goals and that those who do not grasp this are simply jealous of him.

    Ronaldo made these remarks in response to criticism from Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini, two of his former teammates at the Old Lady. The Portugal captain emphasized that he is a team player who knows when to lend a defensive hand to the squad.

     

    The United striker made new comments in the latest episode of Amazon Prime’s ‘All or Nothing’ series on Juventus.

    “This is a collective game. Nobody in the world, alone, can make a difference,” Ronaldo said.

    The former Juventus striker said: “I know when the team needs my help defensively. But my role in the club is to win, help the team to win and to score goals – it’s part of my job. The people who don’t want to see that is because they don’t like me.”

    Bonucci claimed earlier this season that the Juventus team was built up to play for Ronaldo when he was at the club. The Italian defender told Football Italia: “Last year, the team played for him; this year, the group must recover the Juve spirit that existed before his arrival.”

    Chiellini had similar sentiments, saying that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner required a new squad that would ‘play for him.’

    “We reached a stage of the working relationship where Cristiano needed new motivation and a team that would play for him. When he finds a team like that, he can always be decisive, as he was at Juve too,” Chiellini said.

    Ronaldo has again been accused of contributing little to the defensive phase on his return to Manchester United. He has particularly come under scrutiny for failing to press from the front, presumably allowing opposing teams to build attacks from the back with ease.
