Cristiano Ronaldo expects Juventus to have a bright future ahead of them despite a disappointing result away at AS Roma on Sunday (2-2). The Bianconeri went down 2-0 in Rome and needed their talisman Ronaldo to help them secure a point. The Portugal forward scored two goals despite Juventus playing with ten men for over half an hour. After the game Ronaldo hailed the performance of his team.
“I think it is a point earned,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “It had become a complicated situation but we got back into it, even after the red card, so by the end of the campaign this could prove to be an important point. We’re at the start of the season, there’s a new coach, new ideas, but I see the team working well. We’re enthusiastic and I see a bright future for us.”
New signing Alvaro Morata played alongside Ronaldo in Juve’s attacking line. The Spaniard completed his return to Juventus last week as he was signed on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid. Morata had a quiet game and was taken off the pitch by Andrea Pirlo after 58 minutes with Brazilian winger Douglas Costa taking his place.
