Cham­pi­ons like Ronal­do nev­er tire of new chal­lenges, says Pele

The Brazil icon has backed the Por­tu­gal star’s move to Italy from the Cham­pi­ons League hold­ers

Cris­tiano Ronal­do’s deci­sion to end a nine-year Real Madrid stay to sign for Juven­tus is the right move, accord­ing to Pele.

Ronal­do agreed a four-year deal with the Serie A cham­pi­ons to com­plete a €100 mil­lion (£88m/$117m) trans­fer from Madrid on Tues­day.

The Por­tu­gal cap­tain said he wants to start a “new cycle” in his career at the age of 33, hav­ing won four Cham­pi­ons League titles in the past five years at Madrid.

And Pele, who spent 18 years at San­tos before end­ing his career with New York Cos­mos, under­stands Ronal­do’s deci­sion.

Con­grat­u­la­tions, Cris­tiano,” the Brazil icon wrote on Twit­ter.

It was hard to join anoth­er side after so long at San­tos but it was the right move.

Cham­pi­ons nev­er tire of new chal­lenges.”

Indeed, Ronal­do indi­cat­ed that he was con­sid­er­ing a new chal­lenge in May, after Real defeat­ed Liv­er­pool in the Cham­pi­ons League final.

Real’s all-time top scor­er, Ronal­do is report­ed to have signed a four-year con­tract that will see him pock­et €30 mil­lion (£26.5m/$35m) per sea­son.

And should Juve be vic­to­ri­ous in Serie A this sea­son, Ronal­do will become the very first play­er to win league titles in Italy, Spain and Eng­land.
