Cristiano Ronaldo has said he and his Juventus teammates will do everything possible to make sure the Old Lady lift the coveted European Cup this season.
The 33-year-old said it was an easy decision to leave Real Madrid to join Juve as he bids to become just the second player to win the Champions League with three different clubs.
“I want to win the Champions League with Juventus and we will do everything to win it,” he said in an interview with streaming broadcaster DAZN.
Ronaldo has lifted a record five Champions Leagues titles — four with Real Madrid and one with Manchester United.
Another with Juventus would see him join Dutch great Clarence Seedorf, the only player to win the top European trophy with three different clubs.
“We’ll focus on that, with my teammates, but without obsessing over it. We’ll go step by step and then we’ll see, if it’s this year, next year or the year after that,” continued Ronaldo who has agreed to a two-and-a-half-year deal to become DAZN’s first global ambassador.
“The objective for the club is to win the League, Coppa Italia and, of course, do our best in the Champions League.”
Seven-time reigning Serie A champions Juventus have lifted the Champions League twice — 1985 and 1996 — but finished runners-up twice in the past four seasons.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner said he had been impressed with his new club since joining last month in a 100-million-euro deal.
“I’m very happy, the team is strong and Juve, as everyone knows, is one of the best clubs in the world,” said the Portuguese captain.
“I’m positively surprised, we train hard twice a day. I like how they train, their mentality. They have special methods, they are very, very professional and for this reason, I feel good.
“There are things in life that seem to be dictated by destiny and in this case, it was like that.
“I never expected to play in this team, but some things happen naturally, for me it was an easy decision, what was done in Madrid is incredible, I won everything, my family lives there, but it’s part of the past.
“I want to try to write the story in this club.”
