Georgina Rodriguez, Cristiano Ronaldo’s partner, has confirmed he is not leaving but staying at Juventus. The striker was rumored to be on the verge of leaving Turin, but things do not seem that way anymore as Rodriguez has finally cleared the air on claims that the striker could be leaving the Allianz Stadium.
Cristiano Ronaldo has had a tough season at Juventus and his side almost did not make it to the Champions League next season. Andrea Pirlo, who was sacked last week, could not work his magic on the players and the Turin side did not win the Serie A title for the first time in 9 years.
According to Spanish outlet Marca, the model was questioned on Ronaldo’s future and she simply replied, “He is staying.”
Rodriguez’s comments echo those made by Juventus vice-chairman Pavel Nedved and managing director Fabio Paratici in recent months.
According to Paratici, “We’ve decided to keep Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s the best player in the world and we are holding on tight.”
Earlier this month, Nedved said: “Pirlo and Ronaldo will stay at Juventus,” although the club subsequently backtracked on half of that declaration by sacking the latter.
Juventus quickly moved to replace Pirlo by reappointing former manager Massimiliano Allegri, who worked alongside Ronaldo in the 2018/19 season before leaving his post.
