The Portuguese champion at Sky: “The Champions League is not an obsession, it’s difficult, but I think it’s possible”
“I did not expect the reaction of the fans (the applause of Juventus after the goal in reverse at the Stadium, ed.) I already liked this club, but after that moment even more”. So Cristiano Ronaldo during the interview with Alessandro Alciato at Sky Sport: “It was a special moment, I remember that after scoring this great goal against my current team, it was a unique moment – continues the Portuguese star – I did not know that the future would take me to the club I scored that goal, I’m very happy, a good moment of my career, playing in the best Italian club and one of the best in the world like Juventus and I’m very happy for that. ”
The decision – Without the splendid inverted net would Ronaldo’s fate have changed? “It was not that goal that changed things, but certainly the small details helped a little to make the difference, but I am grateful to President Agnelli, the fans and the people who work in this club for giving me this opportunity – The former Real Madrid player continues – I told my agent that if I left Real the only club I would have wanted to go to was Juventus. ”
champions – The main goal of Juventus is obviously, now more than ever, the affirmation in Europe: “I do not see the Champions as an obsession, things happen naturally: a football team has many players and depends on many factors the victory of a competition.As the president said, it is not an obsession, it is a dream.In these 4 years I would like to help the team win one.I know it is difficult, but I think it is possible “.
Juve – Like Ronaldo, his old coach Zinedine Zidane also had the chance to play both in Madrid and in Turin: “I did not talk to Zidane, there was no need for someone to tell me how strong Juve was. the world knows: in the last 4 years he has played 2 Champions League finals and in the last years he has won Serie A 7 times. He is one of the most important clubs in the world and I am very grateful to have the opportunity to wear this shirt. What I can guarantee is that I will give my best to help the team win many trophies “.
