Rossi not surprised Ronaldo starring with Juventus

Real Salt Lake striker Giuseppe Rossi isn't surprised to see Cristiano Ronaldo star with Juventus.

The pair are former Manchester United teammates.

"As soon as I arrived, the first person I met was Ryan Giggs," he said.

"We're talking about a player who could've also been my father! It was a shock to see him.

"Cristiano, on his part, always wanted to improve.

"He was constantly wanting to be the best: he behaved like it on and off the pitch.

"In the gym, it was another challenge. He always wanted to be number one."
