Juventus won its 9th Scudetto this season and Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted he wants to be part of the 10th Scudetto title and story. If so, the fans are also saying the “Ronaldo hints at Juve stay” is good news for the club.
This means the world-class football star will at least play one more season with the Italian champions. If Juve succeeds to annex the title, that will be a treble for the Portuguese international after he switched camp from Real Madrid to Juventus.
At the end of the 2018-19 season, the 35-year-old scored 21 Serie A goals. Ronaldo increased his goals by 10 haven scored 31 in the just-ended season to help secure an enviable 9th league title
Speculations on his possible exit from Juventus in recent times that the Portuguese international was leaving the club took centre stage with Portugal’s great and coach Maurizio Sarri reportedly enduring a rocky relationship at times this season.
However, Ronaldo has revealed he has no intention of leaving Juventus and is ready to play the 2020-21 season at the club.
The champion took to his Instagram page to post after Juve lifted the Serie A trophy on Saturday. The happy Ronaldo said: “Happy to win the last two of the nine consecutive Serie A title for Juventus!
“It seems easy but it isn’t! Year after year with talent, dedication and hard work you can achieve your goals and be better than before! Let’s go for my third.”
It is possible that Ronaldo is eyeing the Champions League with Juve in the coming season. An achievement that will end Juve’s 24 years draught for Champions League success. The last time the team laid hands on the Champions League way back in the 1995-96 season.
The go into battle on Friday against Lyon with Lyon 1-0 down but would surely look forward to turning the first-leg deficit in their favour in Turin, France.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus know the stakes are high, and their job is cut out. A convincing win to keep the dream alive or turn the game against Lyon into another failure at inching close to the champion’s league title.
