He said: “I did not celebrate four years ago. It remains the same for tomorrow.”

When asked about United, Ronaldo said: “It will be a difficult game, United is a great team, but we are at Juvenuts, we have chances to win if we play well and we listen to the coach, United is respected, has experience, is a fantastic team. It is a great emotion, we have won a lot and I still remember the great affection of the city.”


Ronaldo also said: “I do not want to compare Juve and Real Madrid, they are both incredible teams. I made a great path to Real, now I’m at Juventus and I’m very happy, I played United, Real and Juventus, I consider myself happy and lucky.”
