Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri has said that forward, Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t have any more issues with his knee after the Portugal captain scored a hat-trick in his side’s Serie A 4-0 victory over Cagliari on Monday.
Three goals from Ronaldo and a strike from Gonzalo Higuain gave Sarri’s men all three points against Cagliari at the Allianz Stadium.
“Ronaldo doesn’t have any more issues with his knee,” Sarri told a press conference after the match.
“And mentally I think he is a lot calmer, he is smiling and more involved.
“That makes all the difference.”
Sarri added: “We had a good game in terms of our dribbling. In the second half, our attacks were better than they were in the first
“Getting more shots on goal off in relation to the amount of the play we had.
“Little by little we got the better of them, and all the work done in the first half was realised in the second.
“We managed to make use of the attacking areas better.”
The victory over Cagliari means Juventus are now on top of the Serie A table with 45 points from 18 matches.
The Turin club will take on AS Roma in their next Serie A fixture on January 12.
