Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has said that Maurizio Sarri’s side ‘need’ to keep working hard in order to achieve their aim this season.
Ronaldo said this while reacting to Juventus’ 2-1 defeat to Hellas Verona in the Serie A encounter on Saturday night.
The former Real Madrid star opened the scoring for Juventus in the 65th minute against Verona.
Fabio Borini equalized with a fine finish, before Giampaolo Pazzini struck the winner from the penalty spot for the host.
Juventus’ defeat against Verona means one point will separate the top three on Serie A table, if both Inter Milan and Lazio win their matches on Sunday.
Ronaldo, in a post on his official Instagram page, said the result against Verona was not what Juventus wanted.
The 35-year-old wrote: “It wasn’t the result we wanted but we need to keep working hard to achieve our goals. #finoallafine.”
Ronaldo will now hope to lead Juventus to victory when they take on Brescia on February 16 in their next Serie A fixture.
