FINALLY!!! Cristiano Ronaldo speaks after leaving Real Madrid for Juventus

But Ronaldo demands total focus from himself on the task at hand: bringing Juventus, and by extension Serie A, to the very top of the game.

He signed a four-year deal with the Italian champions and will earn €30 million a season.

Just a week after having signed Ronaldo, his new club is wasting no time, and has just launched his official jersey for the upcoming 2018/2019 season.

Juventus have already bagged the past seven Serie A titles and with Ronaldo strengthening their arsenal, would be favourtites to add to their remarkable collection.

"I am well - physically, mentally and emotionally", Ronaldo said.

"It's not true. I'm very happy with his choice".

The 33-year-old forward - who has won five Ballon d'Or awards - joined the Italian champions after nine incredible years at Real Madrid. "I want to show that I'm not like the others, I'm different".

"I remember that goal, against "my" club", Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.

"I wanted to leave Madrid and it was the biggest foolishness of my sports career, and I regret it now. It increases your motivation to start a new adventure". "We know competition will be tough but we must stay concentrated".

The captain of Portugal also pledged to carry on representing his country, leaving open the possibility of helping them defend their European Championship title in 2020 and appearing in another World Cup finals in Qatar two years later.

"I'm so proud to be here, I'm proud they were interested in me and I hope I can take Juventus to an even higher level".

Since claiming their third consecutive Champions League, Real Madrid have had to cope with the shock departures of both Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo's Juventus jerseys are now available in both men, women, and kids' sizes.
