It was a bitter sweet night for Cristiano Ronaldo as Juventus lost 2-1 at home to Manchester United in the Champions League.
The Portuguese forward managed to score one of the best goals he has ever scored in the competition to break the deadlock in the second half.
Leonardo Bonucci sent a beautiful ball over the top and Ronaldo volleyed an unstoppable first time effort past David de Gea.
But Ronaldo’s former club would come roaring back, and would take all three points when Juan Mata and an Alex Sandro own-goal gave the visitors all three points.
Despite the result, Ronaldo was happy with the goal that he scored.
“I saw the replay in the dressing room,” he told Viasport Football, per Football-Italia.net. “I didn’t realise it was a fantastic goal, but I did a good movement and I kick the ball strong.
“I was happy with the goal, but of course I’m a little bit disappointed because we should win the game with three or four goals. Manchester didn’t do much, they had two chances on set pieces.
“I know English teams are always looking for set pieces. We will learn from our mistakes and we are still top of the group, so it’s all good.”
Ronaldo went on to make some comments on the game itself, and, it hasn’t seemed to go down well with Man United fans.
