Luis Suarez: Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus switch came as a surprise

Luis Suarez: Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus switch came as a surprise

In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, former Juventus and Italian worldwide striker Alessandro Del Piero has spoken on what objectives the four Italian sides including Inter should have in the Champions League this season.

Inter defender Stefan de Vrij credited new Juventus signing Cristiano Ronaldo with having a positive impact on Serie A, but rates Kylian Mbappe ahead of him as the best forward he has faced.

While Albiol feels Ronaldo may be contained on more occasions in Italy than he was in Spain, he is aware that slow starts are nothing new for the five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

"We can say that he is the best in the world and we can only be happy to have him with us".

"For sure his experience is one of winning a lot, especially in the Champions League".

"It's a great challenge, but in any case we consider ourselves strong enough to go all the way this season". Yes, we will see what happens. "So far so good, I have started the season well and I am working well".

He can improve, he can do more. "The best managers are those who work out quickly what they want and the period for assessment is now over".

Juventus legend, Alessandro Del Piero has predicted the club that will win the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League trophy.

Matuidi says he's been in touch with France colleague Paul Pogba ahead of the encounter.

"The Champions League is a long journey and that year, we made it, destroying every obstacle on the way".

He explained: "That doesn't necessarily mean the favourites will win the trophy, but obviously we feel that we are up there and have to prove it on the pitch". "If we are still talking about tests for a player older than 20 or 21 then we are off track".

Ronaldo will get another chance to open his account for Juve on Sunday when the Bianconeri play host to Sassuolo.
