Ronaldo scored 450 goals in nine scintillating years at Real Madrid but now embarks on a new challenge in Italy at the age of 33. "Since I was a child, I knew this team and I hoped that one day I could play there".
Ronaldo, who moved on a €100 million transfer last month, is set to appear in Sunday's traditional preseason match against Juve's B team at Villar Perosa, a small town south-west of Turin. "During the years, we played a few times against Juve and I had a special feeling that the Italian supporters like Cristiano".
"It's the biggest club in Italy and one of the best in the world, so it was an easy decision". "Having said that, I don't think Juve are the favourites to win the Champions League, as I'd give that to Barcelona".
'Unbelievable. I remember every day, that never happened to me before.
"It was a handsome feeling". At first I was surprised. The Portuguese shared his views on his first weeks as Juve player and even if he didn't mention the Los Blancos, his description about the way his new side works is a clear dig at his ex-club.
The former Manchester United forward told JuventusTV: "Great club, first of all it is a great club".
"Therefore, my maximum respect for Juventus and given word were why I rejected the call of Real Madrid, the biggest club in the world and the dream for every coach. Details like that can help you in your decision-making process such as the one I went through this summer", he added.
"My priority is to do my best, be professional, try to make the team even better", he said.
