Cristiano Ronaldo is now the primary free-kick taker at Juventus, reveals teammate Miralem Pjanic.
Prior to Ronaldo’s arrival from Real Madrid last month, it had been Pjanic and Paulo Dybala who would regularly take the free-kicks for the Bianconeri.
But now it’s the five-time Ballon d’Or winner who gets the nod going forward.
“Cristiano is here now, someone who in the past few years has shown he is best in the world,” said Pjanic, according to Di Marzio.
“At first when we trained on free kicks it would either be Dybala or me to take it. Now, it’s 100% him.
“He is a tremendous free kick taker.”
The last free-kick Ronaldo scored came back in the World Cup when he memorably equalized for Portugal in their opening game against Spain.
The 33-year-old is yet to score for Juventus after attempting 14 shots in his first two competitive matches.
However, he was on hand to bank an assist in the Old Lady’s 2-0 win over rivals Lazio last Saturday.
Ronaldo will have another chance to open his account away to Parma this Saturday.
