Chiellini Claims Dybala was forced to lower his goals to accommodate Ronaldo at juventus

The Italian defender has aimed a dig at Ronaldo by claiming the squad revolved around him at the club and that his presence forced Dybala to 'lower his goals' to accommodate him.

Cristiano Ronaldo left the Italian Club for Manchester this season after three years in Italy, rejoining United in an emotional deadline-day transfer.

The Portuguese star marked his Old Trafford homecoming with two goals as Manchester beat Newcastle 4-1 on Saturday.

Following Ronaldo's exit, Juventus have struggled to manage just one point from their opening three matches of the Serie A season after losing 2-1 against Napoli on Saturday.

Despite their bad start, The Italian defender said he believes his club can now cope without the footballer after the club used the team to play for him.

The defender told Macra as quoted by Football Italia: 'When you have a world-class player like Cristiano, you cannot help but use the team to play for him.

The Argentine winger is another centurion for Juventus, having hit 100 goals in 257 appearances since joining from Palermo in 2015.

He is yet to sign an extension to a contract that is set to expire next summer, but discussions are being held between his agent and the club.

Juventus could do with him signing that deal and stepping back into Allegri's side, with the club gaining only one point in three matches this season.

Paulo did not figure in the most recent of those, a 2-1 defeat to Napoli, with Chiellini saying of a testing situation in Turin.

The Argentina international has scored just 32 goals in his three seasons alongside Cristiano, compared to 68 in the three seasons at Juventus before he arrived at the club.

But he's scored just once so far this season as Allegri's side were beaten by Empoli and Napoli in their two games since Ronaldo's departure.
