Juventus coach Allegri impressed by Ronaldo's mental strength

Juventus coach Max Allegri is delighted with the early impact of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has now scored in consecutive Serie A games for Juve as he gets his Italian career up and running.

After victory over Frosinone, Allegri said: "Cristiano Ronaldo has had a lot of chances and that happens because good balls always come into the feet of the players who can score goals in the penalty area.

"He missed some of those opportunities, he was unlucky on some rebounding occasions, but his strength is the fact that he is still in the game, even if he does not score right away.

"And that's what happened because scoring a goal like that towards the end means that he has a stronger mentality than others."
