Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero hails Cristiano Ronaldo signing
Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero has hailed the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo as his former side look to get over their Champions League hurdle.
The Italian giants have been dominating Serie A for many years now but it is the Champions League that has eluded them.
Despite making it to the latter stages of the competition several times over the five or so years, they have been unable to take the final step.
Now, they have someone who can single-handedly take them over that final hurdle and who has done with Real Madrid for several years.
That has lead to Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero getting pretty excited over his former side’s chances of European glory.
‘Juventus want to win the Champions League, but not only that, to be recognised on the same level as the greatest clubs in the world,’ he told Sky Sport Italia.
‘Since 2006, we have struggled in Italian football, so raising the bar here with Ronaldo makes a difference in terms of image for Serie A and calcio.
‘He is a player who can score from any angle and has great technique, but on top of any economic aspects, I think he brings this incredible desire to win.
The hunger he has, the way he wants to be the best, is what drags him forward almost as much as his undoubtable quality.’
‘It’s great for Juve, great for Italian football, truly huge and will be wonderful for the whole city and Italian football to enjoy all he can still do.
‘I think it’ll raise the competition level in Italy, raise the desire to beat this Juve side that has won seven titles in a row and today people are talking about Juventus, Turin and Italy all over the world in the way they haven’t for many years.’
