Cassano: Ronaldo doesn't have placed in Pirlo Juventus plans

Former Inter Milan striker Antonio Cassano believes Cristiano Ronaldo has no place in the plans of Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo.

Cassano was reflecting on Inter's 2-0 defeat of Juve on Sunday.

He said, "Inter have stuffed Juventus. I would not have imagined it, I thought they would have played better.

"Some time ago I said that Cristiano Ronaldo would have been a problem with the idea of Pirlo. I do not judge Ronaldo, who has scored 800 goals, but in a new cycle with the idea of Andrea, where you have to press forward, I saw Ronaldo who is starting to struggle.

"I don't see him in Pirlo's idea, in the last few games, between the lines. I believe in Andrea's idea, he will have a future, but now in a moment of transition for Juventus it's a hitch."
