Juventus Coach, Allegri Speaks On Ronaldo's Red Card In 2-0 Win Over Valencia

Ronaldo in tears after getting a red card 
Juventus coach, Max Allegri, has reacted to the red card shown his star man, Cristiano Ronaldo, during their 2-0 win over Valencia on Wednesday. Juventus manager, Max Allegri took a swipe at UEFA for failing to install VAR in Champions League matches, and believes that Cristiano Ronaldo would not have been sent off if video technology was used.
The Italian giants still managed to get off to a winning start to their 2018/19 European campaign despite Ronaldo’s dismissal, though they face a nervous wait over how long their new summer signing will be banned for.
Allegri expressed his delight with the performance of his team, with Miralem Pjanic’s two penalties proving the difference in a 2-0 win over Valencia.
However, he was less impressed by Ronaldo’s sending off and suggested that the whole situation could have been avoided if VAR was introduced.
‘Today the guys played really well, up until the red card we had many balls played towards goal, then we deservedly went ahead and after being up 2-0, as is normal, we gave up some opportunities,’ he told Sky Sports.
‘But when we needed to play, we played, when we needed to defend, we did well.
‘The red card? I can only say that VAR would have helped the referee with his decision, because to remain a man down from the 29th minute, in a Champions League match, for a doubtful episode is displeasing.

‘We hope we only lose Cristiano for as little as possible, but certainly VAR would have helped.’
Ronaldo is likely to be banned for at least one match after his hair pull on Jeison Murillo, which would see him miss their clash with Young Boys, though Juventus will be desperate for him to be available for the home and away ties against Manchester United.
The competition’s top scorer will no doubt be desperate to return to Old Trafford to face his former side.
