New Juventus signing Dejan Kulusevski is appreciating the fact that he is a teammate to the world’s best player Cristiano Ronaldo. The youngster will link-up with Ronaldo at Juventus this season and hopes to follow in his steps.
Kulusevski spent last season on loan with fellow Serie A side Parma and ended the campaign with a series of impressive performances. But surprisingly, the 20-year-old forward was omitted from Sweden’s defeat to France in their first Nations League outing of the new round, something an angry Zlatan Ibrahimovic branded a ‘f***ing joke.’
Dejan Kulusevski then watched his new teammate Cristiano Ronaldo smash home two sublime goals against his nation as Portugal beat Sweden 2-0 away from home. That match saw Ronaldo become only the second player ever to score 100 or more international goals.
