Ronaldo Free Kick Flop! – Italian Football News 06 Jan 23

Ciao, ragazzi! This is Andrew with your Calcio Daily for Friday January 6th!

Reasons why Juve are glad Ronaldo left, part 784!

With Ronaldo at the club, there was no way anyone else was going to be allowed to take free kicks. The Turin club saw only one goal from the 74 attempts that Ronaldo attempted in his highly-paid time at the club.

However, in this season alone, Juventus have the joint-highest number of free kick goals this season. Along with Lorient in Ligue 1, Juventus have scored three of those beauties, the most recent from Arkadiusz Milik on Wednesday.

Former Juve player Blaise Matuidi has called on Serie A to finally do something about the levels of racism directed towards black players from supporters in the stands.

As recently as Wednesday, Lecce’s home game to Lazio was blighted by shameful chanting towards players Samuel Umtiti and Lameck Banda from the Lazio fans.

Umtiti left the pitch in tears because of the abuse and Matuidi was quick to support him on social media. “Full support to my brother Samuel Umtiti”, he tweeted. “We need to wake up!!! We’re in 2023. Let’s do something Serie A.

In this case, though, Serie A have actually done something. Their sporting judge has ruled that their Curva Nord stand must be closed for one match as a result of the racist chants at Lecce.

Some good news for Sampdoria as Harry Winks, who has not played a game yet for Samp on his loan from Spurs, is back to full training.

The Genoa club are desperate for a contribution from Winks as they fight to stay in Serie A.

Here are this weekend’s matches in Serie A:
