Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has termed Cristiano Ronaldo as a superior player following the club’s 2-0 Champions League over Bayer Leverkusen on the road.
The Bianconeri had already guaranteed their progress to the round of 16 stage with the top spot but they managed to produce an impressive second half display as they got the better of the Bundesliga outfit.
Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain has hailed the qualities of Lautaro Martinez and believes his compatriot could have an extraordinary career ahead.
The Argentina international was a regular for the Nerazzurri upfront last season but his gametime has reduced this term with summer signing Romelu Lukaku regarded as the first-choice striker under manager Maurizio Sarri.
Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain has said that he is happy to be playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo again.
The duo were teammates when they were together at Real Madrid between 2009 and 2013 and Higuain is excited to be reunited with the Portugal international, who has become the complete player at the current phase of his career.
Juventus embark on another Serie A season with minimum expectations asking to reclaim the title they’ve been winning for the past eight years. The Bianconeri have been untouchable in Italy over the years and start their new campaign against lowly side Parma.
Juventus have already made quite the buzz in this summer transfer window by signing Dutch sensation Matthijs de Ligt for €85.5 million, but are hungry for more.
Of course, watching them sign prominent midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot on free deals is enough to convince one that they’re already swimming in world-class talents capable of beating the best.
For far too long, Juventus have ruled over the Serie A without replicating similar things in the UEFA Champions League. Despite having progressed into the Champions League final twice in the last five years, they’ve failed in the last hurdle, much to the anguish of their supporters.
However, now with a manager in Maurizio Sarri, who won the UEFA Europa League last season and five-time Champions League winner Cristiano Ronaldo, they embark with new hopes.
Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt has acknowledged that he was frustrated with the speculation regarding his future before joining the Bianconeri. The Netherlands international was the subject of interest from several clubs including Barcelona and Manchester United before he made the switch to the Serie A holders.
Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he has the ambition of winning more trophies with Juventus next term. The 34-year-old had an impressive debut season with the Bianconeri last term and he helped them secure an eighth straight Serie A title while contributing 28 goals across all competitions.
