The Portuguese is in stunning goalscoring form and the Juve gaffer wouldn’t disclose if he’s intending to provide the 35-year-old a rest.
Maurizio Sarri was giving away little when asked if he had been intending to break Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of the club Champions League tie against Lyon after this month.
Ronaldo was in spectacular form in 2020 and has scored 11 goals in his last seven games across all contests, while he’s also on a Juve listing run following netting in 10 successive Serie A games.
The Portugal global’s fitness has been composed by reporters before Thursday’s Coppa Italia semi-final first leg off to Milan, but Sarri insisted that the forward was feeling powerful a fortnight ahead of their continental tie against Lyon starts.
“We shall see,” Sarri said concerning the possibility of napping Ronaldo.
“I’ve spoken with him and he explained he’s feeling well at this time. We’ll appraise him on a game-by-game basis”
The Juve manager said last week the protector was closing in on a return and has been convinced again following Chiellini had participated in a friendly game between Juventus’ childhood gamers and neighborhood team Chisola.
“Chiellini’s road to recovery seems great,” explained Sarri.
“Milan have improved a lot in this period of time,” stated the prior Chelsea manager, whose side would be hoping to bounce back from a surprise 2-1 off Serie A reduction to Hellas Verona.
“They come into the game off the rear of this derby where they played nicely. It’ll be a tricky game.
“My group is training well, together with application and intensity. The standard is quite significant.”
Juve are now second from the Serie A table, although they’re just behind league-leaders Inter on goal difference.
If Antonio Conte’s side go to win the title, it could be the very first time in nine long years that Juve have not managed to win the Scudetto.
