Juventus manager, Max Allegri has sent out a warning to forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, ahead of his side’s clash with Lazio on Saturday evening in Serie A fixture.
Allegri said he’s not afraid to bench the Portuguese international when they face Lazio this weekend at the Allianz Stadium.
He, however, praised the 33-year-old for always putting himself into contention with his fellow teammates.
“Yes. There will only be a few changes before the international break,” Allegri was quoted by Football Italia as replying to a question during Friday’s press conference on whether Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic could play with the Ronaldo.
“There will also be a very hot atmosphere tomorrow so everyone will be needed, even those who enter during the game.
“For example, the wing is more covered with Douglas Costa, but we also know what can happen with CR7 there.
“I have to make a decision on Matuidi today. He’s in good shape and he always runs. He came in late last season but immediately made us understand what he could give us.
