Cristiano Ronaldo has vowed to do the “impossible” and deliver Juventus a first Champions League title since 1996
The Bianconeri have enjoyed great success over in Italy with seven Serie A titles in a row along with four domestic doubles in the past four seasons.
But things in Europe haven’t gone so well over the past two decades with their last triumph coming in 1996 where they defeated Ajax in a penalty shoot-out at Rome.
Since then, Juventus have suffered defeat at the final stage of the Champions League five times with the most recent ones coming in 2015 and 2017.
Meeting fans in Dubai ahead of the Globe Soccer Awards, Ronaldo gave them a promise after they sang “bring us the Champions League” to him.
“I swear I will do the impossible to win the Champions League with Juventus,” said Ronaldo, according to Football-Italia.
“The fans aren’t asking me to save the country though…”
Ronaldo has won the Champions League five times for both Manchester United and Real Madrid and is the competition’s record scorer with 121 goals.
The 33-year-old forward will return from his winter break on January 12 for Juventus’ Coppa Italia game against Bologna.
