Del Piero: Ronaldo ideal for Juventus – and vice-versa
Juventus legend Alex del Piero is delighted to see Cristiano Ronaldo move to Turin.
The transfer for Real Madrid legend Ronaldo was completed on Wednesday at a cost of €100m, payable in two financial years, plus €12m in formation fees to his previous clubs.
“It's great for Juve, great for Italian football, truly huge and will be wonderful for the whole city and Italian football to enjoy all he can still do," Bianconeri legend Del Piero told Sky Sport Italia.
“I think it'll raise the competition level in Italy, raise the desire to beat this Juve side that has won seven titles in a row and today people are talking about Juventus, Turin and Italy all over the world in the way they haven't for many years.
“He is a player who can score from any angle and has great technique, but on top of any economic aspects, I think he brings this incredible desire to win. The hunger he has, the way he wants to be the best, is what drags him forward almost as much as his undoubtable quality.
“Juve are a club accustomed to focusing on the details, determination and the next success rather than the one they've just had. They always aimed higher and wanted to raise the bar, so he will fit in perfectly."
