Maurizio Sarri, who is the curator of Juventus, strongly stated that Christiano Ronaldo lacks sharpness after his team’s painful defeat to Napoli in the Italian Cup final.

With players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala in their squad, many fans expected Juventus to be able to beat Napoli by a large margin.

On Wednesday evening, June 17, Napoli won the Italian Cup final with a score of 4: 2, with Cristiano Ronaldo not playing a single penalty.

Paulo Dybala, who had chances to score in the first half, and Danilo both missed their penalties for Juventus in a tight contest.

As a result, Ronaldo lost a consecutive final for the first time in his career after his team also suffered a defeat to Lazio in the super Cup last year.

“He’s in the same shape as others like Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa, he doesn’t have the sharpness to do what works best for him.
