With Juventus exiting the Champions League at the hands of Porto last season, footage of Cristiano Ronaldo and Juan Cuadrado has emerged in the documentary ‘All or Nothing: Juventus’ with the pair having some strong words to each other.
Porto were winning 1-0 at the Allianz Stadium, which meant a 3-1 aggregate lead. Something which displeased Ronaldo quite a lot and he couldn’t hide his displeasure from the rest of the Juventus side during half time.
Exchange between Cuadrado and Ronaldo
Ronaldo: “We have to work harder. What the f***! We didn’t play at all! Nothing!”
Cuadrado: “Don’t worry”
Ronaldo: “We played s***, always!”
Cuadrado: “You must be an example for everyone”
Ronaldo: “I’m included too. We have to tell each other the truth, we played s***. This is a Champions League match, we need to have personality.”
After that, Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo looks to calm things down: “That’s enough, let’s go. That’s enough, Cri. That’s enough, Juan. We have to be calm and patient. We will continue in this spirit, but without arguing, with the posture of someone who wants to win.”
Juventus would eventually go on to lose the tie 3-2 and Ronaldo would leave Turin to join Manchester United at the end of the transfer window.
