Juventus Will Win Champions League Soon - Ronaldo

Jayfred Ugo

Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, is confident that his club, the italian Serie A giants, Juventus, will win the Champions League soon.

They failed to stake a claim to the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League title where they lost to a youthful Ajax team in a two-legged affair at the quarter-finals.

"After winning what I won at Madrid I needed a change and new motivation

"I still have the strength to keep winning. Juventus will win the Champions League. I don't know if it'll be this year or the next, but it's coming," Ronaldo said in an interview in Italy.

The Portugese national team captain left the footballing world stunned after his  transition from Spanish capital, Madrid, to Juventus in Italy. He has already helped the Italian giants to their eighth successive Serie A crown in 2018-19 season and was even named the Serie A best player in the league, scoring 21 goals.

Cristiano might be 34 years old but he doesn't look like he aged a day. He guided Real Madrid to three successive Champions League titles, five in total, including four for Madrid and one for Manchester United. He has been named top scorer in the Champions League six times, and many have tagged him "King of the UEFA Champions League."

He was pivotal once again for Juventus last season in the Champions League, scoring a hat trick against Atletico Madrid to mastermind a thrilling second leg comeback. He also scored in both legs at the quarter-finals against Ajax but it wasn't enough, as his side’s defense shipped in more goals.

Juventus already made 7 signings, ranking fifth as Europe's best spenders, bringing the likes of Adrien Rabiot of PSG and the highly sorted defender, Mathijis De Ligt, of Ajax in a bid to resuscitate their aging squad and challenge for the UEFA Champions League and the Italian league titles once again.
