Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri says Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire to win is one of the key factors in his success.

Ronaldo managed 28 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions in his first season at Juve to help them land the Scudetto.

The Portuguese superstar has now won six titles in three major European leagues, as well as five Champions League crowns and the European Championship with his country.

Allegri says the 34-year-old five-time Ballon d’Or winner remains committed to improving and winning silverware, and he feels that sets him apart from his rivals.

He told Goal: “In terms of mentality, he is stronger than anyone else. Every day he finds personal objectives to hit and he can find them within himself.

“A player who has won everything he has at the age of 34 will find it difficult to feel hungry, but he is deadly in that sense. He has this determination that is incredible.

“We should all learn from Ronaldo, and I too have learned, because it’s not everyone who gets to work with the best player in the world.

“For example, on Saturday morning we have a game between ranks in training. He has fun, but his fun is winning the game.”

Juventus take on Atalanta in Serie A on Sunday and are 2.40 to claim all three points. Juve are 12.00 to win 2-0 and 23.00 to win 3-0.
