After scoring his first goals for Juventus in the win over Sassuolo on Sunday, Cristiano Ronaldo admitted he was a tad too eager to end his goal drought in Turin. 


Following his controversial move from Real Madrid, Cristiano's goal drought got more attention than it deserved, making the Portuguese superstar 'a bit anxious.'



However, the 5-time Ballon d'Or winner prevailed, bagging a second-half match-winning brace. 


"I’m very happy, we started well," he told Sky Sport Italia, as quoted by ​Football-Espana


"Sassuolo defended well, but we put in an intense performance and deserved to win. I really wanted to score these first goals and I’m happy to have found the net. This is football. The important thing is that the team win."


"Obviously, I was a bit anxious with all the talk after my move from Real Madrid and not scoring, so there were a lot of expectations, but I thank my teammates for supporting me throughout. I knew I was working well and that it was only a matter of time. I am adapting well to Italian football."



"The Champions League is my favourite tournament. It’s a very difficult group, we know that we can do well and Juve must focus on being the best."


The seven-time Serie A champions kick-start their Champions League campaign facing Valencia on Wednesday.
