In the Juventus match against Bologna, Cristiano Ronaldo was left out of the pitch as the coach Andrea Pirlo made the shocking announcement before the kick-off. After being on the bench the Portuguese striker uploaded an Instagram post encapsulating his football career journey amid speculations on his future. Fans assume that the post of Cristiano Ronaldo is a hint to leave the Turin club Juventus
This season Juve ended their streak of winning nine consecutive Serie A titles to Inter yet they managed to win Coppa Italia. The 36-year-old congratulated Inter on their league title and also stated that he has achieved his goal at the Turin club. The Portugal captain, who has one year left on his current contract, was linked to a move out of the Old Lady and he will now speak to Juventus about his future after securing a place in the Champions League.
“The life and career of any top player are made up of ups and downs. Year after year we face fantastic teams with outstanding players and ambitious goals, so we must always do our best to remain at a high level,” Ronaldo wrote.
“This year we failed to win Serie A, congratulations to Inter on their deserved title. However, I have to appreciate everything I have achieved this season at Juventus, both collectively and individually. The Italian Super Cup, the Italian Cup and the Serie A top scorer trophy fill me with joy, mainly because nothing can be won easily in this championship.”
“Thanks to these achievements, I have reached the goal I set for myself from the first day I arrived in Italy: to win the championship, the Cup and the Super Cup, and to become the best player and the best scorer of this great football country, with amazing players, great clubs and its own football culture.”
“I’ve already said I’m not chasing records – it’s the records that are chasing me. For those who don’t understand what I mean, it’s very simple: football is a collective game, but it is through individual achievement that we help our teams achieve their goals,” added the forward.
“There is nothing like the feeling of knowing that I have left my mark in the countries where I have played and that I have brought joy to the fans of the clubs I have represented. It’s what I work for, it’s what I care about and it’s something I will always chase until my last day.”
