Milan - Cristiano Ronaldo said it had been an easy decision
to leave Real Madrid for Juventus 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," the 33-year-old Portuguese superstar
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
Seedorf won the European title four times - with Ajax, Real
Madrid, and twice with AC Milan between 1995 and 2007.
"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 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.
Ronaldo earned a standing ovation from the Turin crowd when
he scored a spectacular overhead kick at the Allianz Stadium for Real Madrid
"The small details make the big difference at the end
of the day so...I would say what I saw in the stadium helped (his move),"
"And, of course, when the people start to applaud me in
the stadium I was like, 'wow'.
"It surprised me a lot because this has never happened
in my life, so it was an unbelievable moment."
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," continued the
"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."
Meanwhile Ronaldo revealed that his eight-year-old son
Cristiano Jr was also a promising footballer.
"He's very competitive. He's like me as a child. He
doesn't like losing.
"He'll become like me, I'm 100 percent sure of it. I'd
like to teach him some things, but ultimately he will choose what to do and
he'll always have my support.
"But of course, I'd like him to become a player because
I think he has a passion for it too."
Perform Group's DAZN secured streaming rights this season to
three Serie A matches in Italy per week with the other games to be broadcast by
traditional broadcaster Sky.
