Juventus Forward Federico Bernardeschi has dropped statement on teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, while discussing his second year at the Turin based club. The forward made the statement while discussing about the crucial nature of the Old Lady’s next two games against Bologna and AC Milan.

In an interview with Sky Sport, he said: “We have two decisive games ahead of us. Bologna and AC Milan are two different clubs but we want to win to qualify for the quarter-finals of Coppa Italia and to win the Supercoppa”.

“It’s never easy to get back to work after a break. We want to win the first trophy of the season, we’ll need a different preparation because it’s going to be very cold in Bologna and very hot in Jeddah”.

When asked about his spell at the Turin based football outfit, Bernardeschi said:  “I think I did well when I played this season. I struggled a bit with injuries, but it’s normal for a footballer. You know that sometimes you can remain out of action because of injuries. I need consistency, I want to help the team. Every day is a challenge to improve yourself, also in training. I’ve changed my style at Juve. I am a different and better player. At Juve, you learn how to improve through hard work and sacrifice”.

Ronaldo has been crucial for the Old Lady in the current football season, with his 15 goals keeping the Bianconeri side in a comfortable position in the Italian topflight division and Benardeschi was quick to praise the Portuguese international when asked about him.

He said: “You watch his moves and that’s enough to learn something. He is a great champion with a solid mentality. He’s been surprising on a sporting and human point of view. It’s good for us to have a player like him on the team. He gives you a charge and responsibility during training”.
