"The teams that are really good offensively are the teams that are very solid from the back".

Coach Massimiliano Allegri added: "Italian football presents different problems and it takes time".

Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero has warned Cristiano Ronaldo that he must find a way to beat Serie A's resolute defences after a tepid start to life in Italy.

Now, however, Modric's national team manager, Zlatko Dalic, has got in on the act by describing Ronaldo, in an interview with Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti, as "egotist" who "I'd never want him in my team!"

On Thursday, Ronaldo was the only nominee to skip the UEFA awards ceremony in Monaco. Antonio Candreva, with his first Serie A goal since April past year, and Croatia World Cup forward Ivan Perisic added two more goals in the last 10 minutes as Inter cantered home, finally beginning to look like title contenders.

He made a total of 316 appearances in all competitions for the Citizens, scoring 79 goals and winning a total of six trophies. Toure has played for Barcelona in the years that the Cartalan club swept domestic, continental and global trophies.

"There is more dedication to defending in Italy and [Ronaldo] is aware of it, as he's a clever player. It's more tactical and even the smaller teams are more organized".

Ronaldo Jr. made his debut for Juventus' U9 side this weekend and he announced himself in some style, finding the net on four occasions according to reports.

"In Italy, it's more hard to score 40 goals [in a season]". The Italian club also saw a boost from Ronaldo's arrival in terms of shirt sales, reportedly selling more than half a million shirts - $60 million worth - bearing the players name in the 24 hours after his transfer was confirmed. "He will now have some time to rest and get ready for our next games".

"I spoke with him and we decided that in consideration of his adjustment process to Turin and his new squad he won't be with us during this period", Portugal coach Fernando Santos said.
