Juventus defender De Ligt: I learn from Ronaldo every day

Matthijs De Ligt is happy with his first six months at Juventus.

The former Ajax captain is back in the starting XI after a short spell on the sidelines and featured in victory over Parma yesterday.

"We want to win, it's important we did so," said De Ligt.

"I am really happy, I think I have grown a lot in these six months. It is not very important what you are now, but what you want to be in the future and how much you can grow at your age. I think I am getting better and better."

On Cristiano Ronaldo, who struck twice on the day, he added: "He is fantastic, he knows how to play and how to win, he can teach us. He is the strongest of all, he has great experience. I try to learn from him every day."
