Cristiano Ronaldo made history as Juventus won Serie A (Picture: Getty)Cristiano Ronaldo says he is ‘proud’ and will be staying at Juventus ‘1000 per cent’ after the club won an eighth consecutive Serie A title.
Juve failed to clinch the title last weekend but got over the line on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side fell behind to Nikola Milenkovic’s early opener but equalised shortly before half-time through Alex Sandro.
The home side sealed victory after the break when Fiorentina’s German Pezzella flicked Ronaldo’s cross into the back of his own net.
