The former Manchester United defender, who has also functioned at Juventus, had this to say to Ronaldo during an Instagram live: “Everyone asks me, ‘Pat, what do you think?’ I haven’t spoken to Cristiano about this, but my advice is, if he wants to play to 2050, he has to go to Juve.”
The 37-year-old Frenchman, who shared the stage with Ronaldo during the former’s Old Trafford tenure, continued: “There is no other team he must join – it’s simple.
“You should never spit on the plate that fed you, so Juve will always be in my heart. You know how much the Italians love you, but it’s a sacrifice. If you go to Juve, it’s to work and to work hard; this lot, ha, don’t know what a vacation is.”
He clearly was all in for the Italian giants, as he concluded: “I can tell you this: if you go to Juve, you’ll be at the next World Cup not as a mascot, but as a protagonist. A protagonist!”
Will Ronaldo pay heed to this advice, or are the reasons against him leaving Real Madrid quite prominent?
