Napoli defender Albiol: Ronaldo learning Calcio much tougher

Napoli defender Raul Albiol isn't surprised Cristiano Ronaldo is battling for goals at Juventus.

The pair played together with Real Madrid.

Albiol reflected: "It is true that in Calcio football it is more tactical and defensive and also very physical, but you have to know how to play. Cristiano is a great player, with tremendous potential. But in Italy it will be harder to score forty goals.

"Also, I hope he does not do it because that would be good for Juventus, but bad for Napoli."

He continued: "Do not trust this, last year also cost him to start with Madrid, he did not score at the beginning and at the end of the season he finished again with some overwhelming numbers. If Cristiano has spent his entire career scoring a bag of goals every season is not by chance."
