Pablo Moreno is 17 and came to the club in the summer of 2018. He left Barcelona behind him for the Juventus youth teams. Cristiano Ronaldo waited for him with open arms who, for the youngster, his like his godfather.

The midfielder had an interview with 'AS' and spoke about Ronaldo. "He helps me a lot. He is a very good person, he speaks to me a lot, he is always there... as a professional he is 10/10", Pablo Moreno said.

"Since I was young he has been my idol, I admire him a lot. He is an example to all youngsters", he continued.

Changing Barcelona for Juventus wasn't easy. Spanish and Italian football are quite different. "When I arrived, I struggled. I came from the 'tiki taka' at Barcqa and [in Italy] everything is more physical. Everyone is really strong, physically speaking. If you don't go hard into a challenge, you will end up on the ground.

Pablo Moreno is one of the players playing for Spain at the under 17 World Cup. "I am living the dream. It is something that I always thought about when I was young", he highlighted.

Lastly, he spoke about Spain's chances: We have a good enough team to win the World Cup. We must continue in the same way because we can win it".
