Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus stars left surprised by mentality of star ahead of Milan clash

Juventus stars are shocked with Cristiano Ronaldo’s mentality ahead of the Serie A’s resumption as they have never seen him so motivated for a game before. The season is set to restart tonight with Juve and AC Milan colliding in the Coppa Italia semi-finals after three excruciating months for Italy with the coronavirus pandemic recording a total of 236,142 cases and 34,167 deaths in the Mediterranean nation.

According to Tuttosport, Ronaldo is ready to leave it all out on the pitch and his team-mates have taken note as they see the kind of passion in his eyes that they have never witnessed before.

The star forward is determined to win the treble this year starting with the Coppa Italia as Maurizio Sarri’s men are favourites to make it to the final.

The Italian champions drew 1-1 with Milan in the first leg at the San Siro thanks to the Portugal international equalising after Ante Rebic opened the scoring.

The 35-year-old will also look to seal the Serie A title, as Juventus are top of the table, and will also focus on leading the Turin giants to their first Champions League triumph since 1996.

Former Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey, who now plays with Ronaldo at Juve, recently opened up about the Portuguese star’s training regiment claiming that he is always the first man in and the last one out of the gym.

Ramsey told The Athletic: “Nah, he’s always last in [the gym]. He’s one of the best players in history and there’s no questioning his commitment to the game and to what he needs to do for himself.

“He’s first into the gym doing all his bits and bobs and then he wants to win every single match on the pitch.

“All the players do but there’s a real determination every single time.

“He just goes out there and produces week-in, week-out and scores so many goals. So many important goals as well.
