Cristiano Ronaldo has pledged his immediate future to Juventus in the wake of their eighth straight Serie A title.
The Portugal international striker, who joined the Bianconeri from Real Madrid in the summer, became the first man to win league titles in England, Spain and Italy on Saturday after his team wrapped up the Scudetto.
And while he had been rumoured to be considering his future after Juventus’ Champions League exit to Ajax midweek, he put to rest that speculation after Saturday’s triumph.
“Will I be at Juventus next season? ‘Mil per cento’ (1000 per cent)” Ronaldo said after the 2-1 victory over Fiorentina that clinched the title.
It was Ronaldo’s cross which was turned in by Fiorentina defender German Pezzella to complete Juve’s comeback victory.
The Old Lady had fallen behind to an early goal by Nikola Milenkovic, before Alex Sandro equalised before half time.
Ronaldo’s vow that he’ll remain in Turin was in stark contrast to remarks he made after he had helped Real Madrid to an unprecedented third straight Champions League last season.
