Serie A: Pirlo drops Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus squad

Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo is injured and has been ruled out of their clash with Atalanta on Sunday.

The Bianconeri will be without the Portuguese superstar due to a thigh injury.

The former Real Madrid ace was unable to play a full part in training over recent days and will not be risked in a Serie A clash between two top-four chasing sides.

Juventus manager, Andrea Pirlo is now planning on handing a starting berth to Argentine Paulo Dybala.

Pirlo told reporters at a press conference ahead of the crunch league game with Atalanta, “Cristiano Ronaldo has a problem with his thigh flexors, he won’t be there against Atalanta.

“We will try to recover him for Wednesday [against Parma].

“He wasn’t able to ‘push’ the way he wanted to in training this week and we prefer not to risk it. The internationals didn’t help, he’s been playing a lot lately.

“Paulo Dybala will start tomorrow.”
