The Portuguese admitted he was relieved to finally break the goal duck as his girlfriend Georgina and son were both pictured applauding the striker after his first goal.
‘I’m very happy, we started well. Sassuolo defend well, but we put in an intense performance and deserved to win.
‘I really wanted to score these first goals and I’m happy to have found the net.’
‘This is football,’ he said. ‘The important thing is that the team wins. Obviously, I was a little tense with all the talk after my move from Real Madrid and not scoring, so there were a lot of expectations, but I thank my teammates for supporting me throughout.’
‘I knew that I was working well and it was only a matter of time. I am adapting well to Italian football.’
‘The Champions League is my favourite tournament. It’s a very difficult group, we know that we can do well and Juve must focus on being the best.’
Cristiano could not have picked a better time to break his goal duck as the champions league begins in earnest. The striker seems to be all set and ready to kick off yet another successful champions league campaign.
