Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo believes his hat-trick against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League ‘is why this club signed me’.
The Portuguese forward netted a remarkable treble against Los Rojiblancos – two headers and a spot-kick – as Juve secured their place in the last eight of the competition.
“It had to be a special night and it was, not just for the goals, but for the team and their incredible attitude. This is the mentality you need in the Champions League and we are on the right track,” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.
“This is why Juve brought me in, to help on magic nights like this. Atleti are a really tough team to face, but we are strong too and proved we deserved to go through.
“It’s too early to talk about the Final, let’s take it one step at a time.”
