You cannot keep Cristiano Ronaldo out of the news. The Portuguese has already taken the Serie A by storm since joining in the summer. He is currently a part of the Juventus side that has lost just 1 of their 20 games this season - the 1-2 defeat at home to Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League.

They are sitting comfortably at the top of the Serie A, where they have won 14 of the 15 games and are unbeaten so far. Juventus has scored 32 goals in the league and the Portuguese has scored 10 of those from 15 games.

On the occasion of completing 5 months at Juventus, the Portuguese was recently interviewed by Italian News Paper Gazzetta dello Sport, where Ronaldo was asked about life at Turin. However, things got interesting when he was asked to choose the best player he had played with at Juventus. Ronaldo had the following to say:

It is not right to name just a few, but I can say that this is the best group in which I have played.

He went on to talk about the team spirit at Juventus, while also comparing the situation with his previous clubs:

Here we are a team, elsewhere someone feels bigger than others but here they are all on the same line, they are humble and want to win. If Dybala or Mandzukic do not score a goal, you still see them happy, smile. For me it is beautiful, I perceive the difference.

He then appeared to explain the main difference was between Real Madrid and Juventus:

Even in Madrid they are humble but here ... I feel they are more so. It is very different from Madrid, this is more a family.

The news of this interview soon caused a lot of stir among football fanatics all over the world. Twitter, as usual, had some of the best responses, where opposition fans, fans of his previous clubs as well as his own fans had a field day. Below are some of the best tweets on offer:


Some saw it as a direct dig to Real Madrid....

... others questioned his own attitude at Real...

Some of them even had a few old reactions to share...

... and not to forget the sarcasm...

Others tried to capture Real Madrid's reaction...

Some Real Madrid and Ronaldo fans decided that they loved him no matter what....

....while others felt that the club and the players got what they deserved from the Portuguese
