- Cristiano Ronaldo has urged his new boss Andreas Pirlo to apply change to the club
- The Juventus legend was appointed after Maurizio Sarri was sacked as manager
- The Biaconeri were knocked out of the Champions League by French side Lyon
Cristiano Ronaldo has passed a message to newly-appointed boss Andrea Pirlo that all Juventus need to bounce back from their disappointment season is critical thinking.
The Old Lady failed to qualify out of the round of 16 in the Champions League following a superior away-goal rule after a 2-2 aggregate scoreline against Lyon.
And the club took a drastic decision barely 24 hours after being dumped out of the competition a Maurizio Sarri was relieved of his duties appointing club legend Pirlo.
Ronaldo took to his Instagram but did not specifically direct it to the new manager but the 35-year-old stressed the importance of change ahead of the coming season.
"The 2019-20 season is over for us, much later than usual but yet sooner than we expected," Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.
"Now it's time for reflection, time to analyse the ups and downs because critical thinking is the only way to improve.
"A huge club such as Juventus must always think like the best in the world, work like the best in the world, so that we can call ourselves one of the best and biggest clubs in the world.
"Winning the Serie A once again in such a difficult year is something that we are very proud of.
"Personally, scoring 37 goals for Juventus and 11 for the Portuguese national team is something that makes me face the future with renewed ambition and desire to keep doing better and better each year.
"May this short vacation break allow us all to make the best decisions for the future and come back stronger and more committed than ever. See you soon!"
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo's sister Elma has aimed at dig at his Juventus teammates after they narrowly missed qualification into quarter finals of the Champions League.
The Bianconeri recorded a 2-1 over Lyon at the Allianz Stadium but were eliminated from the competition due to the away-goal rule.
The recently crowned Serie A champions had lost the first leg by a 1-0 back in February before the three months break.
