Ronaldo a free citizen, does what he wants, says Juventus coach

New Delhi: Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo said that t had nothing to do with him if star player Cristiano Ronaldo broke coronavirus rules with a visit to a mountain resort.

Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo is under investigation for allegedly breaching COVID-19 rules after his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez shared a video on social media of the couple riding a snowmobile at a mountain resort in Italy.

“Ronaldo had the day off, he can do what he wants in his private life,” Pirlo said, after Italian media reported the striker defied travel restrictions earlier this week.

According to Goal.com, the footage shared by Rodriguez, earlier this week, has sparked an inquest from Valle d’Aosta police as the Italian laws currently prohibit travelling between the “orange zones” unless proceeding to a second home or receiving valid clearance for work reasons.

However, the couple has been accused of flouting protocols to celebrate Rodriguez’s 27th birthday.
