Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has spoken about his winning goal against Sampdoria on Wednesday night.
Ronaldo jumped 2.56metres and suspended himself in the air for 1.5 seconds, to power in Alex Sandro’s cross before half time.
It proved to be decisive, as Juve went on to win 2-1, going three points clear at the top of Serie A.
“I am very happy for the victory. It was a very difficult match, Sampdoria played very well. The team had a good attitude.
“The goal was very nice, I’m happy to help the team with the three points. What I want is to help Juventus win new trophies,” Ronaldo told reporters after the game.
On the numbers around his goal, he added:
“I didn’t know I was up [in the air] for so long.”

EPL: Crystal Palace distance self from Black Lives Matter movement
London club, Crystal Palace, have become the first Premier League club to distance themselves from the Black Lives Matter (BLM) UK movement amid controversy being generated by the UK arm of the movement.
Recently, there has been a growing backlash against the aims of the movement ever since the movement gained more popularity following the death of George Floyd.
This week BLM was accused of “spreading hate” after pledging support for Palestine amid Israel’s plans to annex the West Bank.
The BLM banner has been on display at Selhurst Park during Premier League games and while Crystal Palace insisted they back the “ethos” of the cause, they have issued a statement urging people to adopt the anti-discrimination message and not the wider demands of the movement.
Even the BBC has reportedly told presenters not to wear the badge after the campaign was accused of “hijacking” George Floyd’s death for its own selfish political reasons.
In a statement today, Palace said:
“As people will have seen from our first home game, we have placed banners over our seated areas at Selhurst Park that read: BLACK LIVES MATTER.
“We stand proudly alongside members of the BAME community, our players and employees, and behind the ideals and ethos of ‘black lives matter.’
“However, we would like to make clear that we do not endorse any pressure group or body that carries the same term in its name, and we strongly believe that organisations should not use this important force for change and positivity to push their own political agendas.
“We want to be part of a world that is fair, inclusive and open to all.
“As an organisation, we recognise that we need to do more, and we will do more to contribute towards this goal.”
Ighalo nominated for Man Utd award
Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, has been nominated for the club’s goal of the month award for June.
Ighalo’s second-half strike in Man United’s FA Cup 2-1 victory against Norwich City last Saturday is nominated along with six other impressive goals.
Anthony Martial (all three goals) against Sheffield United, Harry Maguire’s winning strike against Norwich City, Mason Greenwood’s opener against Brighton and Bruno Fernandes’ second goal against Brighton are also in the running for the award.
Ighalo won the award for the goal of the month for March.
The Nigerian striker’s stunning goal in the UEFA Europa League clash against LASK was adjudged the best for the month.
The 31-year-old has scored five goals in four starts for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side so far this season.
Ighalo is on loan at Man United for the remainder of the 2019/20 season from the Chinese side, Shanghai Shenhua.
