Cristiano Ronaldo is no doubt enjoying life in the Serie A as he netted his 10th goal of the season in a 3-0 win against Fiorentina
The striker has now equalled a record set by John Charles in 1957 after Welshman also scored 10 goals in his first 14 games for Juventus.
Ronaldo scored from the spot in the 80th minute after goals from Rodrigo Bentancur and Giorgio Chiellini had eased the Italian giants ahead.
After the match, coach, Massimiliano Allegri joked that Ronaldo is obligated to score all penalties he plays as atonement for kicking Juventus out of the Champions League
“Ronaldo takes the penalties,” he told a news conference.
“After he’s scored that one against us in the [98th] minute at 139km/h, am I supposed to let somebody else do that?
“He has to do something to be forgiven.
“He’s got to take penalties and score… always.”
Allegri also spoke about the match in general, stating that:
“The second goal helped us shake off the tension and we relaxed into our lead. We had more chances and could certainly have gone 2-0 up earlier.
“You have to be wary, as in Florence the games are never over until the final whistle, they have great technique and pace, but we defended well on their crosses.”
“It wasn’t easy, as the atmosphere was passionate and the whole city had been waiting for this game,” he said.
“I asked the lads to stay solid and after a period where we didn’t play all that well, allowing them to keep the ball for 10 minutes straight, we reorganised.
Juventus, thanks to Ronaldo and co are now 11 points clear of Napoli
