Portugal football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo may be getting older but his skills on the football pitch are only improving with time. He is no mood to stop anytime soon. At 34, Juventus depend a lot on him to not only score goals and provide assists but also have an impact on the overall run of play in a football match.

Now, former Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has explained what is it in his game that puts him in a league of his own and why he is such a dangerous opponent to be up against.

“His strength is on a mental level,” said Allegri as quoted by Fox Sports Asia.

“He is 34 years old, he has won championships, European titles and golden balls but he continues to give himself important stimuli that make the difference.

“The technique is fundamental to stay at high levels for many years, but the difference is made by the head and the professionalism. If I prefer to coach Ronaldo or a young talent? Ronaldo, without a doubt,” he added.

Maurizio Sarri is the new manager of Juventus and Allegri also stated what he feels about his departure from the club.

“I have absolutely not regretted the choice made with Juventus, things must not be forced. After five years it was time to take a break, perhaps the president had understood it before me,” he said.

Only time will tell whether Allegri will take up another managerial role immediately or will wait to find a deal which suites him perfectly.
