Cristiano Ronaldo has been unveiled at Juventus after he concluded his medicals with team doctors at the club’s medical facility.
Thousands of fans gathered outside the Arena as The FIFA footballer of the year sat for a press conference where he talked about his expectations on joining the Italian Champions.
‘I feel great, for me, it is another challenge. I know it will be tough. I will be ready, Juve is ready. I will be there’ He said. The 33-year-old assured that his current age will not be a factor that will determine his performance at Juve. “The age is not important as I have said before. I feel motivated, I am looking forward to starting well”, he added.
On Juventus giving him a “wonderful opportunity”, Ronaldo says he is “so proud they were interested in me” and hope he can take them “to a higher level”.
Ronaldo also said he hopes to win the Champions League with Juventus, but that it is a trophy every club would like to win. Ronaldo has 4 Champions League medals to his name and admits that one of the factors in joining the club is the standing ovation he got when he scored that overhead kick against them in the semifinals last season.
Ronaldo also said he believes he can win one more Ballon d’Or and not “two or three more” and is still very much a player for Portugal and hopes to continue helping his country.
