Juventus legend, Ciro Farrera, has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo, will find it harder to score goals in Italy than he did in Spain.
The Portuguese star has failed to score for his new club.
Ronaldo has played twice for Juventus this season and will be hoping to break his duck against Parma this evening.
Ferrara said the 33-year-old will score over 20 goals this season, but added that the Serie A is a tougher league than the La Liga.
“I think he’ll get maximum 25-26 goals this season, but certainly fewer than he’s accustomed to scoring in Spain,” Ferrara told Il Corriere di Torino newspaper.
“He won’t get more than 30 goals, in my view.
“It’s different in Italy and I am not saying that just because of the defenders we have here, but also the style of football. It’s more tactical and even the smaller teams are more organised.
“Having said that, you cannot criticise Ronaldo, as he is a phenomenon and a great professional.
“This is why it makes me smile to see this apprehension over when he’ll score his first goal.”
