Cristiano Ronaldo: I HAD to leave Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo says leaving Real Madrid for Juventus was about maintaining his hunger.

With a Serie A title and UEFA Nations League under his belt since, the Portuguese is still desperate for silverware.

"After winning what I won at Madrid I needed a change and new motivation," Cristiano told MARCA.

"I still have the strength to keep winning.

"Juventus will win the Champions League. I don't know if it'll be this year or the next, but it's coming."
