The Portuguese superstar believes the Italian champions are poised to conquer Europe
Cristiano Ronaldo is confident Serie A giants Juventus will win the Champions League, insisting “it’s coming”.
After eight successive Serie A titles, Juve are eyeing European glory following five runners-up medals since their last Champions League triumph in 1996.
Most recently, Juventus have been runners-up to Barcelona in 2015 as well as Ronaldo’s own Madrid side in 2017, with the Portuguese netting a brace in the final.
Ronaldo – a five-time Champions League winner who celebrated four titles with Real Madrid – was unable to help Juve past the quarter-finals in his first season last term.
The Italian side fell to Ajax in the quarter-final round after the Dutch side topped Ronaldo’s former club Real Madrid in the Round of 16.
However, while the forward admitted that he was unsure whether a triumph would come this year, Ronaldo believes Maurizio Sarri’s Juve are poised to conquer Europ and that it will happen sooner rather than later.
“After winning what I won at Madrid I needed a change and new motivation,” Ronaldo told Marca.
“I still have the strength to keep winning.
“Juventus will win the Champions League. I don’t know if it’ll be this year or the next, but it’s coming.”
