Chievo Goalkeeper Takes Clash With Cristiano Ronaldo In Good Spirits

Chievo Goalkeeper Takes Clash With Cristiano Ronaldo In Good Spirits

Cristiano Ronaldo made his mark on the Italian league, despite not scoring in Juventus' 3-2 win over Chievo.

The global superstar made the move to Juve from Real Madrid over the summer, in the most sensational transfer of the window.

And he made his debut over the weekend, in a tightly contested match against Chievo, the Turin side winning 3-2.

Near the end of the match, the star clashed with the Chievo goalkeeper, Stefano Sorrentino, and broke his nose and fell unconscious.

Sorrentino was replaced on the pitch and had to be sent to hospital, where his injuries included damage to his nose, whiplash, and a bruised left shoulder.

But the keeper took to social media to joke about the whole affair.

He said: "THANK YOU for all your messages of affection and respect.

"We are a fantastic squad and yesterday we had a brush with greatness: meanwhile, CR7 didn't so much brush me as get a bullseye!"



Paulo Dybala apologised for celebrating Juventus' goal while Sorrentino was down injured. The Argentina attacker posted on Instagram: "You're right! I didn't realise what was happening at that moment. I was wrong."

Ronaldo will be hoping to continue his form in Spain in Serie A. He left Real being likely their greatest ever player.

The question remains, however, whether he can do the same at Juve, the reigning champions of Italy.

How do you think Ronaldo will do at his new club? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
