Ronaldo: I Joined Real Madrid To Win The Champions League

Cristiano Ronaldo says that the reason he has joined Juventus is to win the Champions League, whether that’s ‘this year, next year or the year after that.’

The Portuguese star joined Juventus in a €110 million transfer this summer, leaving Real Madrid where he won the Champions League four times, including the last three consecutive years.

And now he has told DAZN, after becoming a global brand ambassador for them, that his dream is to win the trophy again with his new side.

‘I want to win the Champions League with Juventus,’ he told broadcaster, DAZN.

‘We’ll focus on that, with my team-mates, 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…

‘The objective for the club is to win the League, Coppa Italia and, of course do our best in the Champions League.’

Ronaldo already has five Champions League titles to his name, with the first coming for Manchester United in the 2007-08 season.

If he can win a sixth title with Juventus, he will join Clarence Seedorf as one of only two players to have won Europe’s elite trophy with three different clubs.

It will also make him the European Cup’s joint-first most successful player, along with Paco Gento, who won it six times with Madrid in the 1950s, although that was under a different format.

The 33-year-old was also asked about his son and whether he thought Cristiano Ronaldo Jr could follow in his footsteps.

‘He’s very competitive. He’s like me as a child. He doesn’t like losing,’ he continued.

‘He’ll become like me, I’m 100 per cent 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.’
