‘Ronaldo only appears to be taking pictures by the pool’ – Juventus star’s quarantine behaviour criticised

Former Juve president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli believes the decision to let the Portuguese head home to Madeira prompted other players to leave

Cristiano Ronaldo has been criticised by former Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli over his actions in the coronavirus pandemic, with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner considered to have “complicated” matters.

The Portuguese was allowed to head back to his native Madeira before public life in Italy shut down, with the Juve squad placed in quarantine once it was revealed that Daniele Rugani had tested positive for Covid-19.
