Juventus winger Douglas Costa confirmed this week that Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘impossible to follow’ in training, but even the great man can make a mistake every now and then.
The former Real Madrid forward, who joined the Italian champions last month in a deal £99.2 million, has impressed everyone at the club and his new teammate summed his arrival up perfectly.
“It is impossible to follow Cristiano Ronaldo in training.” Costa said. “When we arrive, he is already training, when we leave he is still training, I have never seen a player like that,”
That being said, in a recent game of headers and volleys on the training ground, the 33-year-old slipped up and allowed Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa to win.
The pair then recreated the now-famous ‘L’ dance from popular game Fortnite as they laughed and joked around.
If you listen closely, it even sounds like they shout “SIIII” while celebrating.
It was announced in July that the five-time Balon d’Or winner will earn €30 million a year in Turin and in the meanwhile, has penned a four-year deal worth a whopping €120 million.
That’s right. The 33-year-old will pocket £26,545,154 a year at Juventus, which equates to £2,212,096 per month.
If you break that down into weekly, daily and hourly rates, it just proves that despite his age he is still worth a huge amount.
He will pick up £106,180,616 over four years, £26,545,154 in a year, £2,212,096 in a month and £510,483 a week
If that doesn’t put things into perspective, maybe this will: Cristiano Ronaldo will earn £72,925 a day, £3,038 an hour, £50.64 a minute and 84p a second during his time in Serie A.
He’s won Champions League and La Liga trophies, as well as four Balon d’Or trophies during his time in Madrid, but he will begin a new journey against Chievo on Saturday.
Can he go on and produce even more magic in the Italian league?
