Cristiano Ronaldo and Pirlo seen together for first time as Juventus being training ahead of new Serie A season

CRISTIANO RONALDO was pictured alongside Andrea Pirlo for the first time as Juventus returned to training this week.

The Italian giants have no time to waste as the 2020/21 Serie A campaign is set to start on September 19.

Pirlo is preparing for his first season at the helm after taking over from Maurizio Sarri.

And he was getting to know his squad at the training ground on Monday morning.

The Italian legend was one of the first to arrive at J Medical before his players rocked up.

Ronaldo put his thumb up to the camera as he posed for a snap alongside his new boss.

The five-time Ballon d'Or is back in action after spending most of the summer on his luxury yacht.

He enjoyed a luxury cruise around the Med with his stunning girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez.

The 35-year-old had been linked with a move away from Juventus following their disappointing end to last season.

He chipped in with 31 goals in 33 games to help his club clinch their eighth successive Serie A title.

Paris Saint-Germain were tipped to lure him to France, but he is now set to stay in Italy.

He has even called for Juve to make a move for former Real Madrid team-mate Karim Benzema.

Pirlo is plotting a huge summer overhaul with reports claiming he has drawn up a 10-man shortlist.

After the training session, Juventus shared a short clip of the manager to Instagram.
