Christiano Ronaldo, is one of the greatest players of the Football game. Despite his age, Christiano at 33, is still one of the fittest players in the world right now.
Ronaldo, who has been associated with the team Real Madrid for the past nine years, has now joined an Italian club called Juventus for Rs.899 crores.
However, he has always been a victim of trollers, who have always mocked him for his age factor. Taking a dig at the trollers, Ronaldo said that he is “grateful for the opportunity” that is provided to him by the club as a footballer of his age “usually goes to Qatar or China”.
During the presentation in Turin, he said :
“To come to this club at this stage of my career, I am very happy.”
Ronaldo also mentioned that he didn’t received any other offers from any other clubs.
Ronaldo joined Real Madrid after leaving Manchester United in the year 2009. Ronaldo helped Real Madrid win Champions league four times and La Liga two times.
He further added :
“I want to win. I want to be the best. Who knows, maybe I will be awarded the Ballon d’Or again but things will happen naturally. It was difficult to win it in Manchester and Real Madrid, but maybe here? We will see.”
He also said:
“I am well – physically, mentally and emotionally, that is why I am so proud of being here and the way I have come here. I am different from all the other players who think that their career is over at my age, but I want to show the others that I am different. It is very emotional for me at the club now because I am not 23, I am 33. It gives me so much momentum for the future.”
Talking about the club, Juventus is the most successful club of Italy and has won the series A 34 times.However, the club hasn’t won a single championship league since the year 1996, even after reaching the finale five times.Talking about the same, he said :
“We know competition will be harsh but we must stay concentrated. I hope I can help Juventus win it. I hope I can be the lucky star of this club but we will see what happens. Juventus gave me a wonderful opportunity. I’m so grateful. They gave value to my football style so it’s a step forward as I see it. Juventus can have many successes. They have won domestic cups and titles and reached Champions League finals. I am so proud they were interested in me. I hope I can take Juventus to an even higher level.”
Well we really wish all the luck to the footballer and to the club for their future leagues.
