Cristiano Ronaldo Makes Request To Juventus For Additional Security

Juventus splashed out big in the summer to secure the services of Cristiano Ronaldo and the club is keen to protect its investment in the man. But it would seem that Ronaldo is also keen to protect himself and his family.

According to Forza Italian Football, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has asked his new club to improve his security detail.

Real Madrid's former talisman has requested a reduction in the coverage he receives, which is to protect him and his family.

It's a modest request to make, to be fair, especially as his high-profile move has made every single one of his moves an instant talking point in the football world.

The reigning Serie A champion have also provided him with extra bodyguards.

In fact, it extends to Ronaldo's partner, Georgina Rodriguez, and their four children by providing additional security at their home.

Ronaldo ended a nine-year stint at Real Madrid by completing a sensational - and surprising - £100m transfer to Juventus in the summer.

The Portuguese has featured in all three of the Old Lady's fixtures in the 2018-19 season, though he has failed to find the back of the net on all occasions.

In fact, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has come out to defend the marquee signing, saying that it will take him time to adjust to the Italian league.

While it might not be going incredibly well for Ronaldo at the moment - that will no doubt change when he finds his footing in the league - his son is following in his father's footsteps by donning the Juventus top.

Although Cristiano Ronaldo Jr has shown his dad up and scored four goals in his debut match.

It's your move now, Cristiano.

Should Juventus have improved Ronaldo's security detail?
