The new club teammates faced each other in Portugal's 2-0 win over Sweden last week, when Ronaldo became only the second footballer in history to score 100 goals at international level.

Kulusevski joined Juventus in a deal worth €35 million (R687 million) in January, but was loaned out to Parma for the second half of the 2019/20 campaign. However, the Portuguese superstar is expecting big things from the midfielder.

"He is a great talent," Ronaldo said of the young Swede after their UEFA Nations League match, as quoted by juvefc.com.

"He will help us to win and achieve incredible things.

"I really like to see him, he has a great potential, and he's an excellent player. I hope to play with him and score a lot of goals together."

Kulusevski also spoke with excitement about his new teammate ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

"He's fantastic, pure gasoline, he is a world-class player that everyone wants to play with," the 20-year-old said.

"He is an example that I want. In every game, he proves that he is the best, I am lucky to be his teammate and I will learn everything from him.

"He is kind, he loves helping others. I am very grateful."

Kulusevski and Ronaldo both featured in Juve's first and only friendly ahead of the new season, with the new signing assisting Ronaldo's opening strike of the match – the club's first goal under new coach Andrea Pirlo.
