Notably, Vlahovic is now seen as the replacement for Ronaldo at Juventus and is the new number 7 for the team. The number 7 jersey of Juventus was for Cristiano Ronaldo until he made his move back to his former club Manchester United.
Is Dusan Vlahovic ‘The Next Cristiano Ronaldo’?
Whenever a young talent emerges in the world of football, they’re often compared with some big names. Even if Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are two of the biggest names in the world of football now, they were also compared with previous footballing geniuses like Johan Cruyff, Ronaldinho, and Ronaldo (Brazil). So, this doesn’t come as a surprise that many fans have already declared their next Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Dusan Vlahovic is having an exceptional season this year and is bagging some insane numbers. For Fiorentina this season, Vlahovic appeared in 21 matches in the Serie A and 3 times in Coppa Italia. He scored 17 goals in 21 Serie A matches and 3 in 3 games in the Coppa Italia. Despite these insane numbers, Fiorentina were struggling and are currently 7th on the table. The numbers by Vlahovic are great, but it’s too early to give him big titles like ‘The Next Ronaldo’.
Vlahovic’s number grabbed the attention of many teams including Liverpool and Arsenal. But in the end, the Serbian landed at Allianz Arena and will now play for Juventus.
It will be interesting to watch Vlahovic in the upcoming season and how he performs for the teams, especially in the Champions League. What are your thoughts on Vlahovic,? drop your views in the comment section below and let us know.
