Star signing: Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has sounded a note of caution after the club’s signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portugal star made the switch to Turin this summer after nine record-breaking years with Real Madrid, adding his star power to a team who have already won seven Serie A titles in succession.

But in quotes reported by Spanish outlet AS, Allegri warned: “Cristiano has lots of international experience and he will help us a lot, but we have to be careful.

“There is too much euphoria around us and it’s not good.

“This year will be more difficult than others. Opponents will be more aggressive because we have won many games and now have an excellent player like him. They will accept it and also, they will have more motivation.

“With Ronaldo, I spoke about how happy and enthusiastic he is about coming here. There will be time to speak about football.”

Will they be reunited? Ronaldo and Zidane.

Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane will join Juventus and become the Turin club’s new sporting director from October next season, according to Madrid-based online newspaper Libertad Digital.

Zidane, who left his Los Blancos hotseat after steering them to an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League triumph over Liverpool in May, could now reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo at the Serie A giants.

The 46-year-old, who spent five golden years with the Old Lady before moving to the Bernabeu in a world-record deal in 2001, still has a special relationship with the Bianconeri.

Juventus’ quest to win a first Champions League trophy since 1996 is thought to be their top target next season, with Zidane’s experience at delivering European football’s biggest prize surely a big asset in assisting current boss Massimiliano Allegri, whose position will remain the same.
