Cristiano Ronaldo finally got off the mark in Serie A for Juventus to bring his goal scoring drought to an end. The 33-year-old failed to find the net after the first three games for his new club, but the Portuguese opened his account as Juventus defeated Sassuolo 2-1 at the Allianz Stadium.
Ronaldo scored both the goals for the Old Lady and should have added couple of goals more, as he missed some fantastic chances.
In his post match interview, CR7 admitted that he was a bit worried about his duck in the first three matches, and expressed his happiness after scoring twice against Sassuolo.
“I am very happy, Sassuolo played really well , but we were strong and created a lot,” CR7 said in his post match interview.
“There was a lot of attention after my arrival in Turin, I really wanted to score these first goals and I’m happy to have found the net.”
“This is football. The important thing is that the team wins. Obviously, I was a little tense with all the talk after my move from Real Madrid and not scoring, so there were a lot of expectations, but I thank my teammates for supporting me throughout.I knew that I was working well and it was only a matter of time. I am adapting well to Italian football.”
“The Champions League is my favourite tournament. It’s a very difficult group, we know that we can do well and Juve must focus on being the best.”
