Andrea Pirlo appears to already be very comfortable in his new role as Juventus manager, and may even take the surprising decision to rest Cristiano Ronaldo at times this season.

Ronaldo isn't one to sit on the sidelines, but with the star man turning 36 this season, there comes a time where even his legs may need a break.

'When it comes to less important games, we'll try to give him a rest,' Pirlo told Sky Sports Italia.

Juventus got their first win of the new Serie A campaign against Sampdoria on Sunday, a routine 3-0 victory in which Ronaldo got on the score sheet.

'He's not tired yet, as we just started, but when we come up to less important games, we'll try to give him a rest.
