Ronaldo Talks Up Hat-Trick For Juve Against Cagliari: ‘The Year Has Started Well’ 

Hat-trick hero Cristiano Ronaldo says he is pleased Juventus kicked off the new year on a winning note, following their comfortable 4-0 home win against Cagliari in the Serie A on Monday.

After a goalless first half, Ronaldo broke the deadlock in the 49th minute and made it 2-0 in the 67th minute from the penalty spot.

Gonzalo Higuian added the third goal on 81 minutes before Ronaldo completed his hat-trick just a minute later after Higuian’s goal.


It was Ronaldo’s first Serie A hat-trick since joining Juventus from Real Madrid last season.

And reacting to his hat-trick and Juventus’ win, the Portuguese skipper said he is pleased the pressure is now on Inter Milan, who will be guests to Napoli later on Monday.

“The year has started very well. The most important thing despite the hat-trick is that the team wins, ” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.

“We played well and created a lot of chances. I am pleased with the hat-trick, but the most important thing was to win and put pressure on Inter.

“The team is getting better, not just in defence but in all areas. We must improve in all aspects, not just one. We are a complete squad and have to work together in every move.”

On whether he will watch Inter’s game against Napoli, Ronaldo added: “I don’t know, but obviously I hope Inter lose, because that would help us.

“In any case, we’ve done what we needed to do and can only wait now.”

  • These 2 guys are still going strong. At this age!! If I wasn’t a footballer, I will not know or understand what an achievement they have made. Others are really trying too but not like these 2 guys. Rooney is already doing something fantastic with Derby county. Ibrahinovic Z, the mouthy one(this guy get mouth I never see) is also doing well. Miller(Liverpool), Puyol(Barca), Vidic(Man U), Modric(Real Madrid), Iniesta(Barca), Lloris(Tottenham), Ramos(Real Madrid), Luiz(Arsenal), Navas(PSG), Thiago(PSG), Fernandinho(Man City), Gomez(Atalanta), Felipe(Athletico Madrid), Kolarov(Roma), Ozil(Arsenal), Vardy(Leicester), Suarez(Barca), Bale(Real Madril), Buffon(Juventus), Chiellini(Juventus), Alves(PSG), are am trying. They are many far into their 30s. But those 2 are in their own class. Ronaldo and Messi. All of them has one thing in common- hardwork and dedication which I believe is lacking in 99% of African players.

      I quite agree with you to a large extent. But you can’t outrightly blame Africa footballers if they don’t have the longevity of these players you mentioned. At the biological age of 30 most of them are still playing U18. So what do you expect 12 years later when their biological ages are already above 40. It’s not that easy to cheat nature. Lolz
