Napoli boss, Carlo Ancelotti has humorously noted that Cristiano Ronaldo made a mistake joining reigning Serie A champions, Juventus.
The Portuguese star has been making waves in Italy, scoring for Juventus with regularity.
Ancelotti, who was in charge of the superstar while in the dugout at Madrid was full of praise for the iconic number 7.
“The arrival of Cristiano is an excellent sign for the image of Serie A,” he said to France Football
“For a long time, it was the league of stars, Diego Maradona, Michel Platini, Zico, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, Andriy Shevchenko, Kaka, Ibrahimovic… That was the case for at least 10 years. The arrival of Cristiano will restore its reputation.
“He is a huge professional. His only mistake is going to Juve!”
Ancelotti’s Napoli will square off against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League and while he believes the French side, whom he’s also coached, are favorites for the competition, he believes his Napoli team can hold their own.
“It’s nice to see how the club is growing,” he said. “They are one of the best teams in Europe. PSG can win the Champions League, that’s for sure.
“Today is a different Napoli. We do not have Maradona, but we built a real high-level team, with young players in particular.
“Napoli have been playing very well for several years, so the quality is there. I will try to bring some experience, help the team to have a little more personality and courage in some moments when we’re not playing as well.”
