Allegri heaps praise on Ronaldo

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was full of praise for striker Cristiano Ronaldo following his goal in the 1-1 UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw at Ajax.

Ronaldo recorded his 125th goal in the competition with a diving header right before half-time to give Juventus some breathing space in their return leg at Turin next week.

And Allegri hailed the Portuguese, who had just returned from a thigh injury, as being in a class of his own.

“Ronaldo showed that he is on a different level. His timing and movement is different to everyone else’s, there’s nothing you can do about it.

“He is a player who just has a different technique than the others,” said the 51-year-old Italian.
