Cristiano Ronaldo mobbed and grabbed by Juventus fans during chaotic friendly

CRISTIANO RONALDO was the main attraction during Juventus’ traditional friendly with the club’s B team and security had to step in when several fans invaded the pitch to meet their new superstar.
Ronaldo caused shockwaves this summer by opting to leave Real Madrid to join Juventus in a deal worth £105million.

After being given an extended break due to his exploits at the World Cup, Juventus fans were able to witness the first glimpse of the 33-year-old in action wearing the famous black and white strip.

Just five thousand fans were packed into the stadium in Villar Perosa, an estate owned by the Agnelli family which has hosted the friendly since 1955.

It took Ronaldo just eight minutes to get on the scoresheet for the first time in a Juventus shirt after Bernardeschi played a ball over the top to put the forward through one-on-one with the goalkeeper.
There was only going to be one winner from there as he took one touch before comfortably slotting the ball into the top corner.

And having Ronaldo in such close proximity was too much for some fans as they managed to invade the pitch, rushing up to Ronaldo for photos.

One fan could be spotted wrapping his arms around the five-time Champions League winner.

But Ronaldo looked composed as he happily posed for photos with a few of them before the supporters were whisked away by security.
It has become a tradition down the years for fans to storm onto the pitch, marking an end to the match.

Last year’s friendly lasted just 50 minutes before the game had to be abandoned and this year’s game also ended prematurely, ending after 70 minutes.

Ronaldo could be set to make his competitive debut for Juventus next week when the Serie A gets underway.

The reigning Italian champions travel to take on Chievo before their first home game takes place a week later when they host Lazio.
