Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus star Paulo Dybala makes Champions League admission | Football | Sport


That’s the view of Ronaldo’s new team-mate Paulo Dybala, who has praised the Portuguese star.

Ronaldo made the switch from Real Madrid to Turin in the summer, costing Juve £88million for his services.

It came just weeks after the former Manchester United star had helped Los Blancos to their third Champions League title in a row.

Their run to the trophy included a win over Juventus in the quarter-finals with Cristiano Ronaldo netting a stunning overhead kick.

In total, the 33-year-old has five Champions League titles to his name having also won one with the Red Devils.

And Dybala believes Ronaldo gives Juventus a better opportunity of being successful in Europe for the first time since 1996.

“At Juventus, it’s always the same objective – to win titles,” Dybala told the Mirror.

“It’s true that this year, from the outside, the Champions League looks more like an obsession. But the focus is, as always, on the domestic title as well.

“We will have a great chance to win the Champions League this year.

“Ronaldo provides us with another option and is a very good player and this year we have been playing really well.

“Last year we played against Madrid…and we almost won! In four years we have played in two finals.

“I believe in previous years we have proven that we are capable to win, but we have had a bit of bad luck, especially what happened last year against Madrid.

“We haven’t had the luck of winning the competition, but hopefully we do this season.”

Juventus have won three of their four Champions League games so far.

Their only dropped points came in a surprise defeat to Manchester United.

Ronaldo had put Juve ahead but two late goals turned the result around in favour of Jose Mourinho’s side.
