In a recent statement on Sky Sport, Cristiano Ronaldo picked his best goal as a Juventus player since joining the Italian giants three years ago.
Out of almost a century of goals for the Bianconeri, we finally know which one is the favorite for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner. No doubt, there have been many glorious moments throughout the last three seasons for the Portuguese forward in Italy with the Old Lady. However, there is one specific moment that stands out above the rest.
Probably, that moment should be easy to guess unless if you have not followed Ronaldo’s career in Italian football. But not to say much, the one goal that stands out above the rest is the incredible header that Cristiano scored against Sampdoria back in 2019.
Towards the end of the year before the pandemic, Ronaldo gave us a beautiful work of art that nobody will ever forget. Even though he left some incredible moments both at Manchester United and Real Madrid, the Portuguese also left some to spare for his time in Serie A. It is not an exaggeration when we say this is the greatest header he scored in his entire career, which is a very big statement.

Ronaldo Analyzes Juve’s “Strange Year” Where He Scored His Best Goal at Juve So Far
While on a recent interview with Sky Sport as he was receiving the Player of the Year Award in Italy, Cristiano Ronaldo spoke about this goal and analyzed his club’s season: “It was a strange year, a year that no one would have wanted, but on a personal and team level, it was positive, because we won the championship. At the beginning, it was difficult to play in empty stadiums, but our goal was to win the championship and we did it.”
“We missed the Champions League but that’s how football is. The header against Sampdoria was my best goal, I’m very sure of it,” the 36-year-old forward continued. “I want to thank my teammates, because without them it wouldn’t have been possible to receive this prize. Thanks to the players who voted for me, I feel very lucky. I think the trust, the endurance and passion are the secret to continuing to enjoy football. I feel motivated and these elements must coexist, otherwise it’s not possible to play at this level when you are 35, 36, 37 or 40.”
