“I’m not disappointed with Cristiano Ronaldo,” said Allegri. “He wants to leave Juventus and has made a decision, he will look for a new club after three years here. It’s part of life. Ronaldo told me yesterday that he wants to leave Juventus immediately. It’s true and confirmed. That’s why he did not train today and is not available for tomorrow’s game against Empoli. “
“Things are changing, it is a law of life. Juventus remains, that is the most important thing. He is to be thanked for what he has done, also as a role model for the young people. But as I said, we have to keep going.” [Ronaldo] has made his contribution, he has made himself available, now he goes, and life goes on. “
