& # 39; Cristiano Ronaldo has given us a lot, but you need every player & # 39 ;: Massimiliano Allegri says that Juventus cannot just rely on star, but insists that he will stay with Italian giants next season
- Juventus was eliminated from the Champions League on Tuesday evening by Ajax
- Juve lost at home 2-1 in the second leg and saw them lose 3-2 behind
- Cristiano Ronaldo scored both goals from Juventus over the two legs vs. Ajax
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has come back to the idea that his team was too dependent on Cristiano Ronaldo in the wake of their exit in the Champions League.
The Italian giants bow to the quarterfinals on Tuesday evening after a 2-1 home defeat against Ajax (3-2 together).
Ronaldo scored both goals from Juve over the two legs, but it was not enough to prevent them from making a surprise drop against their Dutch counterparts.

Juventus was dumped by Ajax on Tuesday from the quarterfinals of the Champions League
This season Ronaldo & # 39; s first in four years where he does not cancel the trophy after he has won the tournament for the previous three consecutive seasons with Real Madrid.
The Portuguese captain traded Real for Juve last summer and was expected to be the missing piece in their search for European glory.
After the game, Allegri was asked if part of his team felt that Ronaldo would solve everything, and the Italian responded immediately.
& # 39; No, absolutely not, & # 39; he said. & # 39; Ronaldo has given us a lot in the course of the campaign, but when you reach the quarterfinals, you need every player.
This term is the first of Ronaldo in four years in which he does not cancel the Champions League trophy
& # 39; I always said that in order to win the Champions League, you must reach a certain stage in good shape and with good fitness levels. We have been in some sort of emergency for a while now and that can only be sustained for as long as possible.
& # 39; We missed four or five players tonight. Daniele Rugani and Leonardo Bonucci had good games for about 50 minutes, but we lost our unity and organization, giving Ajax the advantage. & # 39;
Speaking later, Allegri confirmed that he plans to stay in Turin next season. The 51-year-old is linked to moves removed from the club, but he says he is not going to do that.
& # 39; I met the president a few days ago and told him that I would stay in Juventus. We sit down with the club and think about the future. & # 39;
