Cristiano Ronaldo marked his first game for Juventus with a goal as their first team beat the Italian side's B team in an annual pre-season friendly.

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.

After the game, fans at the game, who had come in their numbers to catch a glimpse of their new number 7, flooded onto the pitch.

"Maybe. Of course, it helps when you see the people like you, the supporters and club like you, the feeling is completely different".


Although Ronaldo stated there was no specific moment that made his choice for him, he did reiterate his appreciation for Juve's fans after they applauded his overhead kick in Turin last season.

Established custom dictates that five minutes after half-time fans invade the pitch, bringing the game to a halt as fans charge after and greet their heroes.

Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo has finally revealed why he chose to play for the Serie A champions.

Goalscorers score goals and nothing has changed for Cristiano Ronaldo, who is off the mark in Italy.


However Juve's closest recent challengers - Napoli and Roma - have sold important players this summer, and Napoli have to adapt to new coach Carlo Ancelotti following talismanic Maurizio Sarri's departure and subsequent move to Chelsea.

"With the arrival of Ronaldo our expectations are higher for the Champions League".

Ronaldo donned the famous black and white striped kit for the first time since his big-money move from European champions Real Madrid after the 2018 World Cup.
