#2 Maurizio Sarri reconstructing a team to accommodate Ronaldo's instincts

Ronaldo has attempted to keep up with his advancing age by continually changing his game to fit his abilities year-to-year. His final years at Real Madrid saw him refraining from too much involvement in buildup play but he managed to become a lethal goalscorer courtesy of his aerial threat, intelligent movements and his tendency to get into central positions from the wings.

Since his arrival at Juventus, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has overseen a turnaround in approach as he is now seen involved in multiple aspects of their attacking game as he did when he was younger. Maurizio Sarri's willingness to readjust a part of his strategy to maximise the Portuguese ace's influence on the pitch, coupled with his indulgence in the forward's incessant pursuit of perfection, has reaped benefits for the Bianconeri this year and is likely to continue for the remainder of the present campaign.
