Cristiano Ronaldo snubbed as Douglas Costa picks Juventus’ best player

Douglas Costa has caused quite a stir – by claiming Cristiano Ronaldo is not the best player at Juventus.

Ronaldo has enjoyed yet another stellar campaign at Juve and is the club's top goalscorer with 21 goals in Serie A.

Those exploits helped the Italians lead Lazio by one point in the league before the coronavirus pandemic brought a temporary halt to proceedings.

However it seems winger Costa, who has been forced to play second fiddle to Ronaldo under boss Maurizio Sarri, doesn't rate the Portuguese as the club's prized asset.

Instead, that title belongs to Paulo Dybala, who has managed just seven Serie A goals this season.

When asked over the best player at the club in an Instagram Q&A, he said: "The strongest companion is Paulino, Dybala. Then of course also Ronaldo."

Meanwhile, it emerged recently that Juventus may be forced to sell Ronaldo because of the devastating implications that  coronavirus  may have on the club's finances.

There is a huge concern that the pandemic will cause a huge financial strain on the Italian champions, according to  Il Messagero, who claim they may not be able to afford the superstar's salary.
