Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo has finally revealed why he chose to play for the Serie A champions.
Ronaldo joined the Turin club from Real Madrid earlier this summer.
The Portuguese captain said he chose to play for the Turin club because it was a great club and since he was a child, he has been hoping to one-day play for Juve.
The 33-year-old is expected to make his debut for Massimiliano Allegri’s men in a friendly match on Sunday against a Serie B team in Villar Perosa.
“It’s nice to be here, I’m happy, when I chose to play in Juventus there was not a specific moment,” Ronaldo told Juventus TV.
“We’ve met Juventus on a couple of occasions in recent years and I’ve always had the feeling that Italian fans liked Cristiano. Juve is the most important club in Italy, one of the best in the world.
“The fans after the overhead kick? It was amazing. Something like this had never happened to me. When you play the Champions League quarter-finals against Juventus, you can see signs and the whole stadium applauds you, it’s incredible! It was a beautiful feeling. At first I was surprised.
“Why did I choose Juve? It’s a great club, first of all. Since I was a child I knew this team and I hoped that one day I could play with it.”
