Cristiano Ronaldo says he is used to follow Juventus

"The ambition is obviously to go as far as possible in the Champions League, but as always, the Coppa Italia and the Scudetto are also essential to us, because nobody gives out trophies until you earn them on the field".

The 33-year-old made his first appearance for Juve in a traditional friendly against the club's B team on Sunday, which the first team won 5-0 courtesy goals from Ronaldo, Dybala (2), Claudio Marchisio, and an own goal by the goalkeeper.

"Ronaldo has above all brought experience at global level and is an extra motivation for the younger guys to aim higher".

It was Ronaldo's prowess in Europe that caused Juventus to splash a club record fee, as they look to put two lost finals in the last four years behind them and try for European glory for the first time since 1996.

"People had told me he's a consummate professional, but results don't come by chance".


But anyway, you can see this excellent clip below as Dybala and Costa team up on five-time Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo signed for Juventus from La Liga giants Real Madrid last month, signing for the Serie A giants in a stunning £105million deal. "Thanks to all the fans for the great affection!" he wrote on Twitter.

The friendly, which takes place annually, represented Juventus' final test before they kick-off their Serie A title defence against Chievo next Saturday.

As well as Ronaldo, new signings Emre Can and the returning Leonardo Bonucci were present at Juventus Stadium for the warm-up match.

"Leo's been a Juventus player for seven years and now he's back and he's important for us". "I've had the opportunity already to speak with Nike to do the new shoes with these colors".
