Cristiano Ronaldo said that he’s “different” from other players of his age who move to China or Qatar for mega-money deals, during his official unveiling as a Juventus player on Monday.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was his usual confident self at a press conference in Turin attended by media from all over the globe, following the announcement last week of his 100 million-euro ($117 million) move from European champions Real Madrid.

“I’m different from other players who think their careers are over when they’re my age,” said the 33-year-old Portugal captain.

“I want to show that I’m not like the others, I’m different.

“Players of my age go to China or Qatar so coming to such an important club at this stage of my career makes me very happy.”

Juve haven’t won the competition since 1996 but were beaten finalists in 2015 and 2017, bested respectively by Barcelona and Ronaldo’s former club.

“We’re going to fight for not just Champions League, but also Serie A and the others trophies,” he said.
