Ronaldo: 'I am in good shape now'

Cristiano Ronaldo assures his injury concerns are behind him after a great goal to beat Sampdoria. “I want to help Juventus win titles.”

CR7 jumped 71cm off the ground to nod in Alex Sandro’s cross and win the game, after a Paulo Dybala volley and Gianluca Caprari strike.

It was calculated he reached 2.56 metres when he made contact with the ball and was hanging in the air for a full second.

“I didn’t know that. I’m very happy with the result, it was a very difficult game and Sampdoria played well today,” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.

“The whole team showed the right attitude. It was a good goal and I am glad to help the team with another three points.

“I had problems with my knee for a month, but that has gone now and I feel good physically. What I want is to help Juve win matches and titles.”

He’ll get the chance on Sunday, when Juventus face Lazio in Riyadh for the Italian Super Cup.

“It’s a final, the chances are 50-50. Lazio have an excellent squad, but we are very confident that we can win.”

Juventus have lost only one competitive match all season and that was against Lazio.
