A few days after being left out of the Champions League in the round of 16 at the hands of Porto, Juventus suffered another hard setback: they lost 1-0 at home to Benevento (later they would be relegated to the Second Division of Italy) and practically remained out of the running for the Scudetto. The Vecchia Signora finally closed the season with 78 units, 13 less than the champion Inter. In this way the shocking streak of 9 consecutive championships was cut.
In the last hours a fragment of the documentary series of Amazon All or nothing on the Italian set. In one of its chapters you can see the unleashed fury of defender Leonardo Bonucci against their teammates at halftime against Stregoni (Warlocks). At that time the match was level without goals and the team’s benchmark considered that they were letting the last train pass to fight for the local title.
“We are crazy, guys. If we want to win the Scudetto, we can’t play like this! When we have the ball, we can’t play like this! That way we won’t win the Scudetto, we won’t win a damn thing. Whore shit!”, He launched, full of fury. And then he added: “¿They don’t understand how important it is to win this game? It’s been a year! It’s always someone else’s fault, always next time! Fuck let’s take responsibility and blame for this party shit”.
Despite his fiery speech, the man in the National could not touch the intimate fibers of his companions, since the Vecchia Signora finally succumbed 1-0 at home due to a goal from Argentine Adolfo Gaich.
In the images released by the platform streaming They also drew attention for the actions of Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the main figures that the Turin team had at that time (he was the capocannoniere, with 29). The Portuguese simply managed to nod his head. “He’s right,” he blurted out as he tossed something to the ground.
“He was angry because he was aware that we were not doing as well as we should have been. I am a very instinctive person and I trust feelings. I can’t give you a caress when you need a slap to wake up”, Revealed the central marker when recalling that moment.
This is not the first scene that has CR7 as one of the main protagonists. He previously had a stellar role after exploding after elimination in the Champions League against Porto. “We play shit. Always. I include myself too! But you have to tell the truth. To play this Champions League game you have to have personality ”, outlined the attacker while Colombian Juan Guillermo Cuadrado tried to calm him down.
The 2020/21 season was far from being the one expected by Juventus, as it was eliminated in the last 16 of the Champions League and classified to international competitions in an anguishing way on the closure of Serie A. All this caused the leadership to choose for firing Andrea Pirlo as technical director. The consolation prize for Bianconeri It was lifting the Italian Cup (they beat Atalanta 2 to 1 in the final).
