“True champions never break!” Ronaldo says ahead of Cagliari clash
Cristiano Ronaldo says he has put the disappointment of crashing out of the UEFA Champions League behind him.
On Tuesday, Ronaldo’s Juventus were knocked out of the UCL by FC Porto on away-goal rule despite a 4-4 aggregate scoreline.
While Andrea Pirlo’s men won Tuesday’s game 3-2, their Portuguese opponents claim the first-leg 2-1.
In a Facebook post on Saturday, the 36-year-old said he had overcome the disappointment and was now looking to Sunday’s Seria A game against Cagliari.
Waxing philosophical, Ronaldo wrote, “More important than the number of falls you take in life, is how fast and how strong you get back on your feet…
“True champions never break! Our focus is already in Cagliari, in the Serie A struggle, in the Italian Cup final and in everything that we can still achieve this season.
“It’s true that the past belongs in museums (I should say!), but fortunately, football has memory… and so do I! History can’t be deleted, it’s written every single day with resilience, team spirit, persistence and lots of hard work. And those who don’t understand this, will never achieve glory and success.”
Ronaldo also shared a photo of himself during a grueling training session.
