Ronaldo: 'We're only just getting started'

Cristiano Ronaldo is hungry for more trophies after Wednesday's Supercoppa triumph

Cristiano Ronaldo insists this is just the beginning for Juventus after his header was enough to win the Supercoppa Italiana in a 1-0 triumph over AC Milan. The prolific forward made the breakthrough just after the hour in Jeddah, with Milan's task made even more difficult by a late sending off for Franck Kessie. It marks the first medal Ronaldo has won as a Juve player since he joined from Real Madrid in a €112million deal in the close season and the Portugal star hopes this is the beginning of bigger and better things.

Speaking to Rai Sport, he said: "It was a very difficult match, it's very warm and hard to play in these conditions. "We played well, created a lot of chances and obviously I am happy to have scored the winning goal.

"It was my intention to start 2019 with a trophy, I have my first title with Juve and I am very happy. But it is only the start, we will take it one step at a time. We've got this trophy, now we must keep working hard to achieve the next one."

Even though Serie A is only at its halfway stage it seems inevitable that Ronaldo will add Italy's top-flight title to his medal haul with Juve unbeaten and nine points clear of second-place Napoli. But Ronaldo is refusing to rest on his laurels in his bid to win major honours with Juve.

"Serie A is always Juve's main objective," he added. "We are top of the table, but it's a very long tournament and it's going to be tough, so we need to keep working."
