Cristiano Ronaldo said he was "happy" on Monday that Juventus are playing "more offensive football" since the arrival of Maurizio Sarri as coach.

"I think that the team is improving, we have more and more confidence in us, we are playing a different football, more offensive," the Portuguese told a press conference on the eve of the Champions League match of Juve facing Lokomotiv Moscow.

"My role has not changed, maybe I just have a little more freedom, I'm happy because little by little we're getting where Juventus should be, we have a different coach, a different system, new players, we've changed to improve, "added Ronaldo.

The five-time Golden Ball went on to praise Sarri, who came this summer to replace Massimiliano Allegri, with whom Juventus won five league titles in five years and reached two Champions League finals. .

"I like the way he wants the team to play, we create more opportunities, we have more confidence in us, I'm happy with these changes, maybe we could score a little more but I I'm proud of what we do, "he said.

Speaking of the career goal of 700, which he crossed last week, Ronaldo said he was "thinking no more".

"It's already a thing of the past, I want to go beyond, to reach new capes to help the team, I want to play and help the team to win trophies, of course I'm proud of the individual records, but the priority is to win with Juventus and Portugal, "he assured.

This season, Ronaldo has scored five goals and a decisive pass in nine games with Juventus.
