“He’s the best in the world and we’re holding on to him,” Paratici said of Juventus’ Portuguese star, while also acknowledging the team’s struggles this season.

Paratici added in the post-match press conference: “The word transition doesn’t exist at Juventus — we always play to win.

“Some seasons go better than others, but the word transition doesn’t exist. Seasons are important even if they’re about growth that yields results in the subsequent years.”

Sunday’s defeat further dented Juventus’ chances of winning a 10th consecutive league title as the Bianconeri now sit 10 points behind league leader Inter Milan.

Arthur’s under-hit pass midway through the second half was pounced on by Adolfo Gaich to give Benevento an unlikely lead away from home.

Ronaldo had a number of chances late on but was unable to beat goalkeeper Lorenzo Montipo as Benevento held on for a shock victory.

“We needed to turn in a better display but we performed poorly in every aspect of our game,” said Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo.

“Everything was off today, in our attitude and in technical situations … our attitude has to be different in games like this.”
