The 31-year-old Italian, who is third choice 'keeper at Juventus, added that he has a "beautiful friendship" with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Pinsoglio told Italian newspaper Tuttosport: "Cristiano always takes free-kicks in training and he scores them all the time.

"I don't know why he can't do it in games, maybe it's just bad luck.

"I have a beautiful friendship with him, my teammates make fun of me saying that I'll go to the Euros with the Portugal staff and Cristiano.

Ronaldo's future at Juventus has been in doubt in recent weeks amid speculation linking him to a return to Real Madrid.

Ronaldo, who was signed from Madrid in 2018, will see his current deal at the Old Lady expire in 2022.

Pinsoglio is hopeful that the former Madrid and Manchester United star will extend his stay in Turin, saying he will stay "unless something strange happens."

When asked about Ronaldo's future, the Juventus 'keeper said: "I don't know, but I hope so because he has a great impact.

"He has one year left on his contract. I hope and think he will stay. In theory, he will stay unless something strange happens."
