TURIN, NNC – Juventus midfielder Douglas Costa understands the performance of his new colleague Cristiano Ronaldo at the start of the Serie A competition. Costa claims that it does not matter to him that Ronaldo has yet to score a goal for Juventus.
According to Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo still needs period of adaptation after playing in La Liga with Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo has had three matches with Juventus, against Chievo Verona, Lazio and Parma, but has not registered his name on the scoreboard since joining Juventus last summer.
"Of course, I understand Ronaldo wants to score. But he also knows, three points for the team remain the most important," Costa said, as quoted by the official Juventus website.
Ronaldo established himself as one of the most productive players of all time with Real Madrid. He produced at least 30 goals per season there.
