Juventus midfielder Cuadrado defends Pirlo; talks up Ronaldo

Juventus midfielder Juan Cuadrado has defended coach Andrea Pirlo over their battling season.

Juventus sit third in the Serie A table and will face Torino on Saturday.

“Pirlo is doing a great job. It's not easy to join a top club. There have been many changes, and we need to have patience," said Cuadrado.

“We lost some points, and that's why we are in this position. Now we must earn as many points as possible and try to reach a Champions League placement. The Coppa Italia Final is also crucial for us.

“We hope we can win the derby. We must have no fear. We are training to get the best possible result."

Cuadrado was also asked for his impressions of teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

“He is a great professional. You can only learn by working with him. He is a model for what he does in every game and every training session.

“I didn't believe he could have joined Juventus. Now I am happy he is part of the team. I used to wear the No. 7 before he arrived, but I gave it to him without any problem. Playing is what matters. It's better to give than to receive."
