Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he lost a bet with his manager Massimiliano Allegri after missing a penalty against Chievo in Serie A.
Ronaldo, 33, currently leads the scoring charts for Juve and in Serie A with 14 goals in 20 league outings but during the recent 3-0 win over Chievo, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner missed his first-spot kick for the club.
After holding a 100% record with four penalties, the Portugal captain conceded he cost himself a bet he made with Allegri during the pre-season.
“It’s true I had a bet with my coach on scoring every penalty this season,” said Ronaldo, as per The Independent. “I’m ready to keep it.
“It makes me happy to know that my contribution is appreciated by my coach and teammates. They really welcomed me very well and I want to repay their trust and support with hard work.”
Over his illustrious career, Ronaldo holds a record of scoring 108 from a possible 130 for a success rate of 83 per cent.
