Following his first goals for Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo was delighted with his victory over Sassuolo.
Ronaldo stated that he really wanted to score these first goals and happy to have found the net.
“I’m very happy, we started well. Sassuolo defend well, but we put in an intense performance and deserved to win.
“He could easily have had four and missed a couple of very good opportunities from close range.
“This is football. The important thing is that the team wins. Obviously, I was a little tense with all the talk after my move from Real Madrid and not scoring, so there were a lot of expectations, but I thank my teammates for supporting me throughout.
“I knew that I was working well and it was only a matter of time. I am adapting well to Italian football.
“The Champions League is my favourite tournament. It’s a very difficult group, we know that we can do well and Juve must focus on being the best,” Juventus striker said.
