Cristiano Ronaldo says it was "an easy decision" to leave Real Madrid for Juventus.

"Of course, in the beginning of my career he was so important to me because I moved from Sporting to Manchester and I had that Portuguese mentality - too many stepovers, decision-making was not the best", Ronaldo said.

Having announced on Wednesday that he was joining DAZN as a global brand ambassador, Ronaldo made clear that he has settled into life in Turin quickly.

Ronaldo failed to score on his competitive debut for Juventus, but the team still won 3-2 at Chievo Verona on Saturday.

"The world is changing and thanks to an innovative approach, DAZN is breaking down barriers for sports fans", said five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo on the new tie-up.

Rooney also spoke highly of another former Manchester United teammate, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is also shining in MLS in his first season with the LA Galaxy. Clarence Seedorf is the only player to have won it with three different clubs.

However, that was a one-off result and too often the Reds have played poorly, particularly against the so-called "smaller" sides. Defensive lapses, a lack of creativity from the midfield and an increasingly one-dimensional approach in attack.

"The small details make the big difference at the end of the day so".

"We'll focus on that, with my teammates, but without obsessing over it".

The 33-year-old said his strike, which has been nominated for the UEFA Goal of the Season prize, produced a reaction from away fans that he had never seen before.

"[It] surprised me a lot because this has never happened in my life, so [it] was [an] unbelievable moment".

"I don't think so it's not about one player you know, of course in the past years Juventus did a great job in the Champions League". "He's one of the best players in certainly over the last 10 years. I won't put any pressure on him, but it would definitely be a dream for me to see him become a footballer".
