‘Cristiano Ronaldo is in love with Juventus’

The 35-year-old has recently returned to Turin from Madeira where he trained with local side, Nacional de Madeira.

Speaking to Tuttosport, the clubs U19 goalkeeper recounted the time he spent with the Juventus superstar and the affection he has for the Bianconeri.

“It all happened suddenly,” says keeper Filipe Gonçalves, “so much so that even now, if I think about it, it doesn’t seem true to me.

“Cristiano surprised me positively from many points of view. After the third training session, when he realized that it would be the last for Hugo because he was returning to Lisbon, he chased him to thank him and also gave him a gift. And he did the same with me…..

“I can assure you that the most beautiful and unimaginable gift, and that it is worth more than anything else, was being able to train with my idol.

“Ronaldo is in great shape, he trained a lot in Madeira. When my colleague Hugo left, another partner of mine, Pedro Andrade, started working with us. He is not a goalkeeper, he is a player who likes to pass and cross. Let’s say he tried to serve Cristiano a bit like Juve’s Pjanic and Dybala …

“Ronaldo seemed to me to be happy with his experience in Italy, in Turin and especially in playing in Juventus. He told me several times that the club is very large, organized and has enormous admiration for the Juventus fans, who care so much about him.”

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
