Pirlo speaks as Ronaldo throws Juventus’ jersey away after win over Genoa

Juventus boss, Andrea Pirlo, has defended, Cristiano Ronaldo, after he threw his jersey away following their Serie A 3-1 win against Genoa on Sunday.

Ronaldo was giving his Jersey to a ball boy when he threw it away at the end of Juventus’ victory over Genoa at the Allianz before he walked down the tunnel to the dressing room, a move triggered because he failed to score against Genoa at home.

Goals from Dejan Kulusevski, Alvaro Morata and Weston McKennie gave the Bianconeri all three points against the visitors.

Asked about Ronaldo’s apparent anger, Pirlo told Sky Sport; “It’s normal he wanted to score a goal, especially seeing that the match had turned out in a certain way,”

“It is part of the attitude of champions who always want to leave their mark.”

Juventus’ next game is against Atalanta on Sunday, April 18.
