Juventus captain Chiellini: We're still adjusting to Ronaldo exit

Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini admits they're still adjusting to the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo left Juve after three seasons for Manchester United in final days of the summer market.

Chiellini told L'Equipe: "Is it difficult to turn the page? We have to find other balances, but in football we don't have a lot of time. You play every three days, then you go to the national team, so during the ten-day breaks the players are not there.

"You have little time to work but you have to come to an amalgamation. When you lose a champion like Cristiano ... It has happened to us before, I think of Pirlo, Buffon, we cannot replace them but the team finds a way to fill this absence with other players who have different characteristics."
