Ancelotti: This is why Ronaldo to Juve is good

Former Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has hailed Christiano Ronaldo's arrival at Juventus saying it is great for Serie A.

Ronaldo switched to join Juve from Real Madrid in a €100million deal. Ancelotti was in charge of Madrid in the 2013-14 Champions League success period.

He has joined Napoli himself and will cross paths with his former star when the 2018/19 league kicks off. The tactician coached Juve between 1999 and 2001.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is absolutely world class and a consummate professional. His arrival to play in Serie A is good for Italian football, not just for Juventus. He will motivate us to work even harder.  Juventus will be the team to beat, but not the only one." he told a news conference.

Ancelotti further defended his Napoli move after the unsuccessful Bayern Munich spell adding that he is ready for the new adventure.

"I'm proud that [president Aurelio] De Laurentiis wanted me as coach. I was keen to come back to Italy and I admire this club - that's why I opted for this exciting new adventure at Napoli." he concluded.
