As Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the world’s greatest footballers, there has been plenty of speculation over his recent move from Real Madrid to Juventus. The switch between these two iconic European football clubs may have caused plenty of headlines, but it also gave Ronaldo one of the biggest challenges of his career.
Whilst Ronaldo managed to score a goal in his first Juventus friendly game against Juventus B, it’s clear that he didn’t face such an easy time once the Serie A competition got started. Although Ronaldo managed to score goals effortlessly in La Liga, he had to wait an agonising three games to hit the back of the net for Juventus.
Ronaldo managed to break the deadlock with two goals against Sassuolo and it will have eased the tension mounting about whether the Portuguese ace could really deliver at such a monumental Italian club like Juventus. Whilst he broke many goalscoring records with Real Madrid, it took him 28 shots to eventually get a goal with Juventus. This is probably down to the sheer amount of attention he has received from the notoriously defensive Serie A league, and the fact that he has been Juventus’ most-fouled player also shows just how tightly he is being marked.
Despite this, Ronaldo has still managed to create plenty of goals for his teammates as was seen by his help in each of the goals in the recent Juventus 3-1 win over Napoli. But how long does Ronaldo see himself playing football at the Allianz Stadium? The star is already 33 years old, and whilst he might have one more World Cup in him, he must surely be thinking ahead to how to finish his career on top.
Ronaldo has been no stranger to making money away from the pitch. He has already successfully launched his own CR7 fashion boutique and graced the cover of the FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer video games. Whilst his own video game, Ronaldo & Hugo: Superstar Skaters, is unlikely to be featured on any of the esports betting sites featured at www.esports.net/, it shows just how versatile the Cristiano Ronaldo brand name can be.
Thankfully, it looks like Ronaldo’s goal against Sassuolo will have calmed nerves, and the star can get back to the task of helping Juventus reclaim their Serie A league title. And with a pivotal Champions League match against Manchester United just around the corner, it seems as though we haven’t seen the last of the formidable skills of Cristiano Ronaldo just yet.
