Cristiano Ronaldo slams critics after Juventus’s Serie A win over Verona

Aaron Ramsey

Juventus' Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey (3rdL) celebrates after scoring an equalizer during the Italian Serie A football match Juventus vs Verona on September 21, 2019 at the Juventus stadium in Turin.

The 41-year-old hadn't featured for the Old Lady since May 19, 2018, when he took his place between the goalposts in the 2-1 win over Hellas Verona. Veloso's goal came just seconds after Verona had remarkably hit the woodwork with both a penalty and the resulting rebound.

Ronaldo had earlier explained his gesture towards the Atletico Madrid fans during Juventus's 2-2 UCL draw at the Wanda Metropolitano, claiming that he was telling the fans, "you have to learn".

"The important thing is that the team won, we were exhausted after the Champions League, which is only natural after the travelling, the intense match in Madrid, but we were able to get it done".

Buffon's appearances have been spread across three clubs - Parma, Juventus and PSG - with Maldini having spent his entire career with Serie A rivals Milan.


The five-time Ballon d'Or victor courted controversy during midweek when he gestured provocatively to Atletico Madrid fans in Juventus' 2-2 Champions League draw in the Spanish capital.

Verona came close to a leveller in the 89th minute.

Samuel Di Carmine initially had his penalty saved by Gianluigi Buffon but Miguel Veloso went for the follow up and made it 1-0.

Ronaldo was given the opportunity to put Juventus two-nil ahead after Juan Cuadrado was brought down in the box three minutes after the restart.

"This is a team under construction and you can tell", said the former Napoli and Chelsea manager.
