Cristiano Ronaldo is “pleased with the hat-trick,” but insists it is more important that Juventus “put pressure on Inter” with their 4-0 win over Cagliari.
CR7 was the star of the show in Turin with three goals and an assist for Gonzalo Higuain.
“The most important thing is that the team wins,” he told Sky Sport Italia after his first Serie A hat-trick, the other having come in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid.
“We played well and created a lot of scoring opportunities. I am pleased with the hat-trick, but the most important thing was to win and put pressure on Inter.
“We’re improving game by game, not just in defence, but also in midfield and attack. We are a complete squad and have to work together in every move.”
Juventus have their three points, now joint leaders Inter have a tricky trip to Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli this evening.
“I don’t know if I’ll watch it, but obviously I hope Inter lose, because that would help us. In any case, we’ve done what we needed to do and can only wait now.”
