Ex-fitness coach: Break good for Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo

Leonel Pontes feels the break will do Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo good.

Ronaldo is spending the coronavirus suspension in Madeira.

And Pontes, his former fitness coach, told Gazzetta dello Sport: “This rest, especially at his age, will help him recharge his batteries, retain that hunger and desire to play.

“The incredible thing is not that Ronaldo is so good at 35, but his consistency.

"It's simply inhuman to be at the top level for so many years, changing countries, teams and even positions."
