Cristiano Ronaldo took just eight minutes to score on his Juventus debut

Returning Bonucci accepts Juventus jeers

"Regarding [Cristiano] Ronaldo, I can say that we have bought a great player on the pitch, but above all, I was told that he is a superb professional, and that is certainly the case".

Those attending the game at the estate in Villar Perosa, which belongs to the Agnelli family which owns Juventus, traditionally invade the pitch at the full-time whistle.

Used to imposing arenas such as the Old Trafford and the Bernabeu, current Ballon d'Or holder Ronaldo will take his first steps in black and white stripes at the town's compact ground, named after notoriously brutal Italy centre-back Gaetano Scirea.

Strict security was put in place with Ronaldo featuring in front of just five thousand fans with a complete ban on the sale of alcohol.

A pitch invasion from the almost 5,000 fans in attendance forced the end of the game after only 72 minutes. Ronaldo did not look best pleased in the clip, but I'm sure he makes a mockery of them in training most days.

USA tariffs hike adds to Turkey's economic problems
The currency drop is particularly painful for Turkey because the country finances a lot of its economic growth with foreign money. Friday saw the lira's value falling over 15 percent, bringing the decline to over 40 percent since the beginning of the year.

He was all alone and finished into the left side of the goal easily.

He was at both the 2017 Champions League final in Cardiff, when Ronaldo scored a brace as Real Madrid hammered Juve 4-1, and in Madrid last season when the Portuguese slotted the last-gasp penalty that knocked Juve out in the quarter finals.

Juventus kick off their Serie A title defence at Chievo next Saturday and all eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo to see if he can replicate his incredible La Liga goalscoring form in Serie A. Spoiler, he probably can.

"With the arrival of Ronaldo our expectations are higher for the Champions League". July visits to the club museum shot up 15 percent compared to past year, and were almost a third more than in 2016, and the over 29,000 season tickets available to fans have been sold despite a deeply unpopular 30 percent price bump announced before Ronaldo's arrival.
