Cristiano Ronaldo will 'take time' to adjust to life at Juventus

United will come up against their former hero in October when Ronaldo returns to Old Trafford with Juventus.

Mario Mandzukic bagged a goal and an assist to inspire Juventus to a 2-1 win over Parma in Serie A on Saturday night.

Inter had taken one point from their opening two games and struggled again for more than one hour against a dogged but uninspiring Bologna before heavily-tattoed Belgian Nainggolan, who missed their first two games injured, came to the rescue.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo has a week off from club duty with the global break taking over.

The Portugal worldwide shocked the footballing world after leaving Real Madrid for Juventus in the summer.

"He's not getting the rub of the green at the moment either - the ball is not bouncing right for him or he's shooting just off target".

While he has had slow starts to seasons in the past, notably his the beginning of his final year in Madrid, Ronaldo's misfortunes in front of goal are magnified somewhat by the fact that his arrival meant the shipping on of Gonzalo Higuain to Milan.

"I wouldn't say that the Italian league is more hard or better than other leagues but it does require more attention". Let's just say that the teams are very strong in defence and the coaches are very good.

Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Mourinho said: "Difficult for us, hard for them [the other teams]". Here, it's nearly impossible for a player to score 40 goals in one season. Paulo Dybala, last season's top scorer in Turin, has also been forced to adapt to his new teammate and has been consigned to the bench for the last two matches.

Allegri insisted that Serie A presents different issues to a player who has only played in Portugal, Spain and England previously. "So maybe it's better for us".
