Cristiano Ronaldo believes this Juventus side is best group he’s ever played with ‘unlike elsewhere where some players feel they are better than others’.
The Portuguese international has said Juventus has the best team spirit of any club he has played at, in a thinly-veiled swipe at Real Madrid.
Ronaldo joined the Serie A champions in a shock £100million move last summer from Real, and said he had been impressed with the team atmosphere in Turin.
In doing so, he alluded to a different dressing room culture in Madrid, and said that in Italy, unlike in Spain, players were happy when their team mates got the glory.
Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Ronaldo said, “I am very happy. The city is really nice, the fans are very kind and Juventus is a fantastic club that is incredibly organized”.
“The players here are humble and they work very hard. It has been fantastic. This is the best group I have ever played with”.
“At Juventus we really feel like a team, unlike elsewhere where some players feel like they are better than others. Here everyone is humble, if Dybala or Mandzukic don’t score you will still see them happy. That is beautiful”.
When asked directly about the difference between Real and Juve, he said, “They are very different. Juventus is more of a family”.
Ronaldo joined Juventus five months ago and has so far been a huge success with 11 goals in 19 appearances for the club.
Juventus are the only team in the top European leagues to remain unbeaten domestically, with 14 wins and a draw from their first 15 fixtures.
