When translated, Ronaldo's sister said:
"Yours did better than anyone. I am proud to see you play, and to see your dedication, but unfortunately alone you cannot do everything, moreover it is impossible !!!!! You know football is like that, but you also have to think you did your best, and you're still the best."
Juventus are supposedly set to replace manager Maurizio Sarri with Mauricio Pochettino according to sources and with Ronaldo nearly joining PSG before the COVID-19 pandemic, Juventus could look very different next season.
Elma Ronaldo infamously called out Virgil Van Dijk at the 2019 Ballon D'Or awards even though Ronaldo finished ahead of the Dutchman.
