Juventus defender Danilo has put a light on the immense void Cristiano Ronaldo left at the Torino club.
The 36-year-old left the Italian giants in August to rejoin the Red Devils on deadline day for around €15 million.
“Any team would miss Cristiano Ronaldo and all the sides he left have suffered his absence,” Danilo told Goal Brasil.
“The years go by and he remains dominant. With him, every chance is a goal, the numbers don’t lie and he is extremely competitive.
“I learned a great deal from playing with Ronaldo at Juve, we still talk today and wish each other good luck before games, every now and then.
“We will continue to miss him, of course, but Juventus have the capacity and the DNA to get back on track even without Ronaldo and achieve victories with hard work and sacrifice.
“And Cristiano knows that,” concluded the former Manchester City fullback.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo is looking ahead to United’s trip to Vicarage Road this weekend in the English Premier League.
