Signing Cristiano Ronaldo was a mistake – Ex-Juventus president, Gigli..


Former Juventus president, Giovanni Cobolli Gigli, has said the club made a mistake by signing Cristiano Ronaldo.


Gigli also claimed Ronaldo is hindering the club’s efforts to win back the Serie A title and wants him sold before the summer transfer window closes.


Ronaldo joined Juve from Real Madrid in a €100million transfer before the 2018/2019 campaign.


The 36-year-old is now into the final year of his contract.


But Gigli, who was Juve’s president between 2006 and 2009, told SerieANews: “I’ve always been honest: signing Ronaldo was a mistake. It’s impossible to recoup the investment and it will remain that way.


“He’s a great player, but I have to be honest – the sooner he leaves, the better for him and for Juventus.


“I hope that [Juve head coach] Massimiliano Allegri knows how to continue using him like he did against Udinese. That is, with intelligence and when the game is in progress.


“Ronaldo hampers Juventus’ attack. Without him, they can do excellent things in collective terms.”
