CRISTIANO RONALDO has bagged more than FOUR TIMES as many goals in Serie A than any of his Juventus team-mates have managed since he joined.

The Portuguese superstar, 36, has scored more goals than any other star in the Italian league since signing from Real Madrid for £99million in 2018.

Ronaldo has netted 76 times in 89 league games for the Bianconeri and also laid on 17 assists.

No other Juventus player has scored more than 18 goals in the same time period.

The former Manchester United star became the fastest player ever to notch a half century with his 50 goals taking just 61 league appearances.

Despite his relentless goalscoring, not everyone is convinced Ronaldo has been a good addition for the Old Lady.

The side are struggling under Andrea Pirlo and look set to have their decade of domestic dominance ended this season.

Fourth-place Juventus are ten points behind leaders Inter Milan with only ten games left in the Serie A season.

And former Italy international Antonio Cassano believes Ronaldo has in fact made the Turin side WORSE since he rocked up.

Cassano also explained away his phenomenal goals tally by suggesting he plays in a selfish way and only cares about scoring and picking up more individual records.


He told Bobo TV: "He’s a brake on [Andrea] Pirlo. Cristiano only thinks about his goals and records.

"If you’re president and you want to start a new cycle, you cannot give a rookie coach the responsibility of coaching someone like Ronaldo.”

And the former striker previously raged to Corriere dello Sport, saying: "Juventus signed him to win the Champions League, but they've done worse with him than they've done before.

"They'd also won the Scudetto [Serie A title] without him. I think he's been a failure.

I think Cristiano has done terribly over the last three years."

"They've tried to improve their style of play rather than win. Cristiano just doesn't work in the same way as Andrea.

"Pirlo wants to build the play, pressure the opposition and play between the lines, and this means Cristiano doesn't participate much.

"I think Cristiano has done terribly over the last three years."

Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from his cash-strapped employers and could even return to the Bernabeu with reports suggesting he may be available for as little as £21.5m.
