Cristiano Ronaldo bags first trophy for Juventus
Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed his first trophy with a second-half header against AC Milan in the Supercoppa in Saudi Arabia with the Rossoneri reduced to ten men in a tight game.
“It was a very difficult match, it’s very warm and hard to play in these conditions,” he told Rai Sport via Football-Italia.net.
“We played well, created a lot of chances and obviously I am happy to have scored the winning goal.
“I am happy, it was my intention to start 2019 with a trophy, I have my first title with Juve and I am very happy!
“It is only the start, we take it one step at a time. We’ve got this Cup, now we must keep working hard to achieve the next trophy.
“Serie A is always Juve’s principle objective, we are top of the table, but it’s a very long tournament and it’s going to be tough, so we need to keep working.
“I dedicate the goal to the team, my family, friends and everyone around the world who loves Juve and loves Cristiano.”
