Cristiano Ronaldo: So why did I choose Juventus...?

Cristiano Ronaldo: So why did I choose Juventus...?
Cristiano Ronaldo says he grew up a Juventus fan.
Ronaldo chose to join Juve when leaving Real Madrid this summer.
He said, “Great club, first of all it is a great club. Since I was a kid, I looked at this team and said I hope to play there one day. Now I will play for a fantastic club, one of the biggest clubs in the world. I'm happy.
"I don't have a precise moment when I decided. During the years, we played a few times against Juve and I had a special feeling that the Italian supporters like Cristiano.
"It's the biggest club in Italy, one of the best in the world, so it was an easy decision, as Juve are an unbelievable club."
When Real Madrid won their Champions League quarter-final in Turin last season, Ronaldo scored a sensational bicycle kick and was rewarded with a standing ovation by his opposition crowd.

"Unbelievable. I remember every day, that never happened to me before. In the Champions League against Juve, a quarter-final, you score a goal and see everyone in the stadium applaud you. It was an unbelievable feeling.
"I felt surprised at the beginning. I am used to following Juve and I like the club, but since that moment I liked them even more. I won't say it was the key point in my decision, but every detail helps. Maybe. Of course, it helps when you see the people like you, the supporters and club like you, the feeling is completely different.
"I have to say thank you to all of them for the support. My priority is to do my best, be professional, try to make the team even better. That is my job, I'll try to enjoy it as much as I can and make Juventus even better.
"My first goal will happen in a natural way, I'm not thinking about that. I know that I will be prepared, I'll be ready, but my first goal doesn't matter. I just want to be ready.
"I want to be in good shape, help the team, win trophies – that is what I'm looking for."
