Cristiano Ronaldo says he is proud after making history with Juventus

But after securing the Scudetto on Saturday to add the Serie A title to his three Premier League titles with Manchester United and two La Liga championships with Real Madrid, Ronaldo made clear that his footballing future remained in Turin.

Juventus' success today means that Ronaldo is the first player to win league titles in Italy, England and Spain.

However, Alex Sandro headed in from a corner for the equaliser and Ronaldo's cross from a sharp angle was then redirected in by Fiorentina defender German Pezzella either side of half-time.

A youthful Ajax side stunned Ronaldo and Co in Turin last week to knock them out of Europe at the quarter-final stages and the five-time Ballon d'Or victor is focused on righting the wrongs of this campaign.

Juve's 28th win in 33 league games this season left them with 87 points, 20 more than second-placed Napoli who have six games to play.

"It was a very good first season and I adapted well". We won the Scudetto and the Italian Super Cup, which is certainly not easy to achieve.

Giorgio Chiellini has been part of all eight of Juve's consecutive title wins - as well as the 2005-06 victory which was later taken away following the Calciopoliscandal - but this was his first as captain.

After the final whistle, Juventus players celebrated by forming a circle and jumping up and down clapping their hands.

Shortly before 1:30 a.m., police responded to a call of an aided female outside the Bushwick Houses located at 811 Flushing Ave. Police said the attacks were not random and that the three all knew each other.

The only other club in the top five European leagues that had won seven straight was Lyon in France from 2002-08.

But this season they won less than the previous campaign, lifting Serie A and the Italian SuperCup but ending their four-year Coppa Italia reign.

The 34-year-old claimed his second title since joining the Italian giants in a transfer worth €100 million (R1.59 billion), plus add-ons, in July 2018. "Of course, it did not go well in the Champions League, but there is next year".

The Juventus coach estimated that the title had been in the bag since February 2 when Paulo Dybala scored the only goal in a win over Bologna.

Still, there were more moments of concern for Juventus as Chiesa hit the crossbar two minutes before the break.

"We won it five games from the end and that's all about what the lads did on the pitch".

"The exit from the Champions League hurts, but this title says it all about what we managed to do - eighth in a row with five games to spare", said Allegri.
