Seria A Ronaldo to retire after Juventus 1 hour ago

Seria A Ronaldo to retire after Juventus 1 hour ago

Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) workers are planning a strike following the auto manufacturer's decision to purchase Ronaldo for €100-million (R1 565 579 354.05).

Fiat factory workers in Italy can think of a few things they'd rather see their owner spend $130 million on than Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Italian club will also pay additional $19 million as part of FIFA's solidarity mechanism. Workers are angry because they believe the huge sum spent on Ronaldo would have been better spent investing in Fiat.

It went on to say that the companies' employees had been subjected to "a life of misery" and "unequal treatment, [which] can not and should not be accepted", calling on the owners to invest in new auto models to guarantee the future security of Fiat workers and to improve the finances of "thousands of people instead of just one".

FCA, whose plants churn out Jeep SUVs, sporty Alfa Romeos, luxury Maseratis and tiny Fiats, had promised to bring all employees in Italy back to work by the end of 2018, but that goal slipped as investments and product launches were delayed.

It is also expected five or six days of training for Ronaldo won't be enough for him to be risked for an immediate clash with Real Madrid - the club he left this week after nine vintage years.

Juve, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and CNH Industrial (CNHI) are all owned by the holding company Exor, which is controlled by the Agnelli family, and workers have expressed their disgust at the transfer.

According to analysts, Bloomberg reported, Ronaldo could give the vehicle manufactures an advertising boost: the striped Juventus shirt has Fiat Chrysler's Jeep logo on the back.

The strike was called for late Sunday to early Tuesday.
