Chiellini: Ronaldo like Pirlo

Giorgio Chiellini believes Cristiano Ronaldo has made a similar impact on Juventus to Andrea Pirlo.

Pirlo’s arrival in 2011 coincided with the start of Juve’s dominance in Serie A, and Chiellini claimed Ronaldo was taking the playmaker’s work to the next level.

“I think Cristiano Ronaldo has noticed what an important team he has behind him, particularly at Valencia,” the defender said from Monday’s Gran Gala’ del Calcio ceremony.
