Ronaldo: 'Trophy gives Juve confidence'

Cristiano Ronaldo hopes Juventus winning the Supercoppa by beating Napoli 2-0 can ‘give us more confidence going into the future.’

CR7 opened the scoring and Alvaro Morata sealed it on the counter with the last kick of the game after Lorenzo Insigne had fired a penalty wide.

“We are very happy with the win, it was difficult, especially as the pitch was terrible, but we got it done,” Ronaldo told RAI Sport.

“We showed a different attitude to the bad performance against Inter. That is the past, this is a very important trophy and we hope this can give the team more confidence going into the future.”

This is the first trophy of coach Andrea Pirlo’s career, can Juve also fight back to retain the Serie A title?

“Milan and Inter are very strong, but I believe we have what it takes to win. It’s going to be very difficult, but I believe the Scudetto is still possible.”
