The Juventus captain, Giorgio Chiellini has aimed a dig at Cristiano Ronaldo by declaring the team revolved around him at the club and that his presence forced Paulo Dybala to ‘lower his goals’ to welcome him.

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.

Despite their poor start, Chiellini said he believes Juventus can now cope without the 36-year-old after the club used the team to play for him.
