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.
Newly-appointed Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said that he will be aiming to get the best out of Cristiano Ronaldo during the forthcoming campaign. The 60-year-old was recently appointed as the new head coach on a three-year contract after deciding to end his association with Premier League side Chelsea after just one season.
The 2022 World Cup is less than three years away and host nation Qatar have begun to deliver on most of the key construction works. The upcoming World Cup is expected to be the most expensive and Qatar have announced the official cost for the event.
Qatar General Secretary of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy Hassan Am Thawadi revealed that the total budget for the tournament is around $6 billion.
Juventus head coach Max Allegri has hailed the mentality of Cristiano Ronaldo during his debut season in the Serie A. The Portugal international made the surprise move to the Bianconeri from Real Madrid last summer and he has proved a good hit through the campaign where he has contributed 27 goals while helping the club win their eighth successive league title.
Former Manchester United assistant Rene Meulensteen has said that the current situation with Paul Pogba cannot be compared with the time when Cristiano Ronaldo was at the club. Pogba has enjoyed an impressive season with the Red Devils where he has contributed 13 goals and nine assists in the Premier League alone and this has already spread speculation that he could pursue a bigger challenge elsewhere.
Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has changed his opinion about Cristiano Ronaldo by saying that Paul Scholes was a much better player than the Portuguese international. The best part of Ronaldo’s progress into the superstar status was done at Manchester United, whom he represented in almost 300 games across all competitions.
Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he is disappointed with the club’s 3-3 draw against Parma in the Serie A this weekend. The Bianconeri appeared on course to return to winning ways against Parma but they were eventually forced to accept a share of the spoils after Gervinho popped up with his second goal in the 93rd minute of the game.
