Juventus defender Bonucci: Ronaldo needed us as much as we needed him

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has spoken of the value of Cristiano Ronaldo to the Turin giants.

Ronaldo left Juve after three seasons for Manchester United last month.

Bonucci told the Athletic: “That was the problem. The idea that one player, even the best in the world, could guarantee Juventus victory.

"Maybe we took it for granted that if we gave Cristiano the ball he would win the game. But Cristiano needed the team as much as we needed him.

"There had to be a compromise, because it is the team that raises the individual, even if the individual is the best player on the planet."
