Cristiano Ronaldo has continued to add more goalscoring records to his name after helping Juventus earn a 2-2 draw against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

It was his third of the season but he achieved the milestone while playing in the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, and the Italian Serie A.

Legit.ng also reported that Miralem Pjanic has admitted that though Cristiano Ronaldo was disappointed with his departure at Juventus, he endorsed his move to Barcelona.

The pair had successful spells with the Bianconeri, winning two Serie A titles following the arrival of the Portuguese superstar from Real Madrid in 2018.
