Superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has thanked Juventus supporters for applauding his overhead goal in the LaLiga Champions’ 3-0 victory in the Champions League quarter final first leg in Turin on Tuesday.
Two-time reigning champions, Madrid put one foot in the semi-finals thanks to Ronaldo’s two goals and one assist to Marcelo.
Having opened the scoring inside three minutes, the Portugal captain was at it again with an unforgettable bicycle kick in the second half.
The FIFA world best player earned a standing ovation from Juventus fans.
Reacting to the fans’ gesture, Ronaldo told reporters, “I have to say thank you, Grazie, to all the supporters of Juventus. What they did for me was amazing.
“This has never happened in my career so far but I’m so happy.”
Ronaldo had earlier admitted that he did not expect to score his bicycle kick.
He became the first player in Champions League history to score in 10 successive appearances as he took his tally to 39 goals across all competitions for Madrid this season.
