Ronaldo snubbed a Juventus team bonding session after the rest of the squad met up for dinner. Juve travel to fourth-placed Roma on Sunday, with Ronaldo’s side trailing Inter Milan in the table, but only on goal difference.
To help give them an extra edge the Serie A champions met up for dinner with Miralem Pjanic, Leonardo Bonucci, Sami Khedira and Blaise Matuidi sharing the squad pic online.
But missing from the photo is Ronaldo – who kick-started the decade with a bang, netting his 56th career hat-trick as Juve thrashed Cagliari 4-0.
Days before the team bonding session the Portugal skipper posted a ripped picture online as he worked out with a kettlebell.
Ronaldo – who claims he has the body of a 23-year-old – works hard to maintain his amazing physique and could have been preparing for the clash by training, not enjoying a night out.
The 34-year-old spends hours in the gym, working on Pilates-based exercises rather than lifting heavyweights.
In particular, the former Man Utd superstar uses resistance work to strengthen his core and spends hours in the pool.
