Cristiano Ronaldo has sent Juventus fans a brilliant message after returning to on-field action Wednesday night against Ajax in UEFA Champions League.
After missing out due to thigh injury for a couple of weeks, Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo made a remarkable return to the footballing action as he scored the Old Lady’s only goal against Ajax in quarter finals of UEFA Champions League. Despite pulling out a stalemate in Amsterdam, the Portuguese superstar is certainly happy to be back and to be on the scoresheet.
Ronaldo took Instagram to deliver a message for Juve supporters.
“Happy to come back and score another goal in this amazing competition. Well done team! #finoallafine.”
The Bionconer’s boss Massimiliano Allegri also showered a brimful of praise over Cristiano Ronaldo after his return to a form.
“Ronaldo showed that he is on a different level. His timing and movement is different to everyone else’s, there’s nothing you can do about it,” Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.
“He is a player who just has a different technique than the others.”
While Ajax captain Matthjis De Ligt also came forward to praise the Portuguese.
“Ronaldo’s greatest quality, apart from his talent, is that he is a predator in the box. He sees an opportunity, just a tiny gap, and he goes for it incredibly quickly. He sprints into the area between two players.
“We know that you can’t leave gaps at the back for Juventus, as that’s what they prepare for. We passed it around and tried to find holes in their defence.”
Juventus welcomes Ajax on Tuesday night for second leg of UEFA Champions League quarter finals at the Allianz Stadium with advantage of one away goal on the back.
Cristiano Ronaldo is an undisputed driving force of Juve’s Champions League run this season. He continues to prove that he is the best ever footballer to feature in Champions League and undoubtedly will uplift a pivotal role in second leg and beyond.
