'Ronaldo Is A Monster!'

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to open his goalscoring account in Serie A, but he has now been described as a "monster" by one of his new teammates.

Juve Boss On Ronaldo's Goalless Run

The 33-year-old has drawn blanks in his opening three fixtures for the Bianconeri since his stunning €112 million (R1.94 billion) move from Real Madrid last month.

However, France international Blaise Matuidi believes the Portuguese's goal drought is nothing to be concerned about as the player is working hard off the pitch to rectify the situation.

"He's the best player in the world, and it's a lot of fun playing with him," the midfielder told Telefoot.

"At work, he's a monster. He arrives first and leaves last. He's working, he's working... I've never seen that and I understand better now why he's won the Ballon d'Or five times."

The former Paris Saint-Germain player also gave some insight into how life has been since winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia with his national team.

"People's eyes have changed. Many people congratulate us on a daily basis," Matuidi added.

"One evening, I was organising a reception at home and one of the neighbours came to complain about the noise. However, when she saw me, she burst into tears.

"Only football can produce emotions like that."
