Cristiano Ronaldo on Thursday, August 27 delighted Juventus fans after confirming he would be with the club next season.
Rumors were rife that the 35-year old was set for an exit after apparently losing his “untouchable” status with the Bianconeri.
Ronaldo wrapped up a second successive domestic season with Juventus in the 2019/2020 campaign after winning the Serie A title by beating rivals Inter Milan by a solitary point.
The manner in which Juventus however crashed out of the Champions League led to the sacking of Maurizio Sarri, with reports indicating Ronaldo could be on his way out as well.
However, taking to Instagram on Sunday, the Portugal superstar sent an elite message to fans as he expressed the excitement in the coming season.
“As I’m getting ready for my third season as a Bianconero, my spirit and ambition are as high as ever,” he started.
“Goals, victories, commitment, dedication, professionalism. With all my strength and with the precious help of my teammates and all Juventus staff, we work once again to conquer Italy, Europe, and the world.”
The Serie A is set to kick off on Saturday, September 19, and will conclude on May 23, 2021.
Despite already holding a number of records since joining Juventus, Cristiano is showing no signs of slowing down as he once again seeks more success with his club.
Notably, he scored 31 Serie A goals in 2019/20, equalling the all-time Juventus record for the most in a single league season.
There is a general feeling, however, that his stint with the Italian giants will be considered a success if he somehow manages to inspire them to a famous Champions League triumph.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has been spotted together for the first time with Andrea Pirlo as Juventus began training ahead of the coming season.
The 2020/21 season will be starting on September 19, and Juventus chiefs and players know that they have no time to waste.
