Marchisio mocks Ronaldo free kicks

Former Juventus star Claudio Marchisio mocked Cristiano Ronaldo for his shocking free kick record in the Bianconeri jersey.

While watching Monday’s 3-0 win over Crotone, in which CR7 bagged a first half brace, Marchisio sent out this tweet.

“Apart from free kicks, Cristiano Ronaldo is still SCARY in the final 25 metres!!!”

The Ballon d’Or winner has seemingly lost his touch from set plays since moving to Juventus.

He has scored just one direct free kick at the club, which came at his 43rd attempt, during the Derby della Mole against Torino in July 2020.

Considering his coach is now a specialist like Andrea Pirlo, it seems strange that Ronaldo so consistently fires his free kicks into the wall.
