Players My Age Go Qatar or China—Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo was in a jovial mood on Monday as he was being unveiled in Turin at his new club Juventus.

The 33-year-old Portuguese forward completed his €105m yesterday after a successful medical. He later on addressed the media during which he said that he is “grateful for the opportunity” given to him by the Italian giants.

The former Real Madrid striker also mentioned that players his age “usually go to Qatar of China”.

"To come to this club at this stage of my career, I am very happy," the five-time Ballon D’Or winner said at his unveiling in Turin.

Ronaldo left Madrid, a side he joined in 2009 from Manchester United after 9 seasons, scoring a whopping 450 goals for Los Blancos (The Whites) to become the club’s record goal-scorer.

"I want to win. I want to be the best. Who knows, maybe I will be awarded the Ballon d'Or again but things will happen naturally,” the 2016 European Championship winner remarked.

"It was difficult to win it in Manchester and Real Madrid, but maybe here? We will see," writes BBC Sport

"I am well - physically, mentally and emotionally. That is why I am so proud of being here and the way I have come here,” he added.

"I am different from all the other players who think that their career is over at my age, but I want to show the others that I am different. It is very emotional for me at the club now because I am not 23, I am 33.

"It gives me so much momentum for the future."
