Cristiano Ronaldo takes swipe at old Man Utd and Real Madrid team-mates who thought they were ‘better than others’

The Portugal international swapped the Spanish capital for Turin in the summer in a deal worth £105million.

In 19 appearances for the Old Lady the 33-year-old has already netted 11 goals and contributed seven assists, with Juve already eight points clear in Serie A and into the last-16 in the Champions League.

Max Allegri's squad includes stars such as Paulo Dybala, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci, and according to the five-time world footballer of the year they make-up the best squad of his distinguished career.

He told Gazzetta Dello Sport: "I'm very happy. The city is really nice, the fans are very kind and Juventus is a fantastic club, that is incredibly organised.

"The players here are humble and they work very hard. It's been fantastic. This is the best group I've ever played with.

"At Juventus we really feel like a team, unlike elsewhere where some players feel like they are better than others.

"Here everyone is humble, if Dybala or Mandzukic don't score you see still see them happy. That is beautiful."

Ronaldo's comments are particularly surprising – he has only been at the Allianz Stadium for five months – centrally due to the calibre of talent he played alongside at his previous clubs.

During nine years at Real he won the Champions League four times, including in each of his last three campaigns at the Santiago Bernabeu.

He turned out for Los Blancos alongside the likes of 2018 Ballon d'Or winner Luka Modric, record signing Gareth Bale and captain Sergio Ramos.

In six seasons at United he won nine major honours, and was part of the side which followed up their Champions League triumph in 2008 by winning the Fifa Club World Cup the same year.

That side managed by Sir Alex Ferguson included Wayne Rooney, Carlos Tevez and Paul Scholes.

But it turns out that neither group of players compare with the current crop in Turin.
