Juventus youngster Dejan Kulusevski has opened up about playing with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juventus signed Kulusevski in the January transfer window of 2020, and the Italian outfit subsequently sent the Swedish attacker back to Parma on loan until the end of the season.

He returned to Juventus ahead of the 20-21 season and has made 30 appearances across all competitions for the Old Lady. Although Kulusevski is far from a finished article, he has already emerged as one of the most exciting young talents at the Serie A side.

Kulusevski has played alongside Ronaldo in several matches for Juve. The Swedish international says playing with the Portuguese attacker is something that he will always carry with him in life. Kulusevski also revealed that Ronaldo helps him a lot in training.

"Playing with Ronaldo is something that I will always carry with me in life, no one can take away the satisfaction of training every day with him," Kulusevski said in an interview with CalcioShop [Juve Canal]. "We joke a lot together, even he likes to joke. He helps me a lot, especially in the head shots, he always tells me how to do them and I have already improved a lot."

Meanwhile, Juventus face Verona in Serie A in their next match and will be hoping to earn three points and keep their league title hopes alive.
