Ronaldo finally reveals why he chose to play for Juventus

Returning Bonucci accepts Juventus jeers

It took Ronaldo just eight minutes to get on the scoresheet for the first time in a Juventus shirt after Bernardeschi played a ball over the top to put the forward through one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

Ronaldo, who signed for Juventus from European champions Real Madrid in a shock 100 million euro ($117 million, Sh11.7 billion) deal exactly a month ago, will wear the Juventus kit for the first time in the club's traditional pre-season friendly between Juve's first XI and a "B" team in Villar Perosa, a small town 40 kilometres (25 miles) west of Turin.

The friendly, which takes place annually, represented Juventus' final test before they kick-off their Serie A title defence against Chievo next Saturday.

The Portugal captain said he had developed an appreciation for Juve over the years and shared his affinity for the club in an interview coinciding with the launch of their streaming Juventus TV channel. Since I was a kid, I looked at this team and said I hope to play there one day.

Although he seemed ready to quit the club at one point, Allegri retained his position at the helm of Italy's most successful club in recent years and declined the opportunity to manage a side considered the biggest and best in the world.

"Great club, first of all it is a great club".

"The fans after the overhead kick?"

England v India: Tourists struggle but rain halts England charge with ball
England lead the five-match series 1-0 following their victory in the opener at Edgbaston. The case has been no different during the ongoing Test between England and India.

"I don't have a precise moment when I decided [to join]".

"It was fantastic", Ronaldo said. It was unbelievable. Something like this had never happened to me.

Juventus have signed Ronaldo not to cement their domestic dominance, after winning seven straight league titles, but to boost their worldwide profile and bag their first Champions League triumph in over two decades.

"It was a attractive feeling. In that case, the sensations are completely different".

Ronaldo could be set to make his competitive debut for Juventus next week when the Serie A gets underway.

As for his first goal, he said he has not even thought about it. "That's my job. I'll try to enjoy it as much as I can and make Juventus even better".
