Pirlo: Ronaldo ‘will make difference’

Andrea Pirlo believes Cristiano Ronaldo ‘will make the difference’ for Juventus in their Champions League push.

Ronaldo joins Juve after winning four of the last five Champions Leagues with Real Madrid, and Pirlo feels the Bianconeri have moved ‘a lot closer’ to their European dream.

“Cristiano Ronaldo can bring that something extra, which Juventus need,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“I’m happy that a great champion has joined Juve. Buying a player like him doesn’t win you the Champions League alone, but you get a lot closer to it.

“Ronaldo is a player who tilts balances, and he can help Juventus win the Champions League.

“He’s a top player, he’ll make the difference and we’ll see something beautiful.”
