Former President of Juventus, Giovanni Cobolli Gigli, has condemned the club forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, following the way he conducted himself during the outbreak of Coronavirus in Italy.
Gigli attacked the former Real Madrid player for breaking the club’s quarantine and heading to his native home in Portugal to ‘take pictures in the pool’ with his family as coronavirus continues to spread across the world.
He slammed the five-time Ballon d’Or winner for posting pictures on his Instagram account during the, he further stated that Ronaldo should have remained in self-isolation in Italy.
“The thing at Juventus got complicated when Cristiano Ronaldo left,” Gigli told Radio Punto Nuovo.
“Ronaldo said he went to Portugal because of his mother, but now he only appears to take pictures in the pool.”
“When this exception was made, the situation fell apart, and others wanted to go. It shouldn’t have been like that. They should all have been quarantined [here in Italy].”
“Criticizing now is easy, but, seen from the outside, I don’t understand why some players wanted to leave Italy.”
“When they return, it will be more difficult to get back into shape, because they will have to be quarantined for 14 days [because of the coronavirus pandemic].”
