The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has surely improved the standing of Juventus F.C. among Europe’s elite football teams. These were the words of Pavel Medved as he lauded the achievements of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Juventus in a surprising move, successfully pried away Ronaldo from Real Madrid in a €112million deal and the Portugal superstar scored his first goal for the Serie A title holders on Sunday.
He scored in the traditional friendly match between the senior side and youth team of Juventus F.C. to herald a successful new beginning at the club.
While speaking to Juventus TV on the issues surrounding Ronaldo’s arrival, Mr. Pavel Medved has this to say :
“Juventus’ step forward among the big clubs in Europe has been confirmed further.
“That we managed to bring Ronaldo to Juventus is something exceptional.
“It’ll give us a bit more for the future, as well as for all of Italian football.”
Juventus have had a fairly busy time in this pre-season’s transfer period with the team successfully bringing in other players apart from Cristiano Ronaldo. Players like Emre Can, Mattia Perin and Joao Cancelo. The club also successfully “lured” Leonardo Bonucci back to Turin.
Germany international midfielder Emre Can came as a free agent from Premier League giants Liverpool. The vice-president also had something to say about him.
“There’s been very little talk about Emre Can but this was an important move. He was wanted across Europe by many big clubs but we managed to sign him. He’s a player with a lot of substance to his game both tactically and technically.
“He is a typical German player who knows how to distribute very well. You’ll see that he will be very important to the team.”
