Juventus fullback Cancelo: Beating Valencia very special for me

Juventus fullback Joao Cancelo enjoyed victory at former club Valencia on Wednesday night.

The win marked Juve's opening Champions League game, which also saw Cristiano Ronaldo sent off for Juve.

Cancelo said, "The Mestalla is a very special stadium for me, here I started my career and it's always nice to play here.

"What I need, I do what (coach Max) Allegri asks me, especially in the defensive phase.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is an example for all of us, has won everything both on a collective and individual level, what has happened does not change anything."
