Cristiano Ronaldo lauded by Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri after goal-scoring debut

Giorgio Chiellini

Big things are expected of Juventus this season following the €100m arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo. However, the match had to be abandoned as the fans of the ace Portuguese footballer invaded the ground.

Villar Perosa is the fiefdom of the powerful Agnelli family, the founders of Fiat and the clout behind Juve, who bought their family estate there - nicknamed "The Castle" - in the mid-19th century and established the annual pre-season friendly in the town.

Members of the industrial dynasty - founders of Fiat vehicle manufacturers and often called the "Italian Kennedys" - have lived at "The Castle" in Villar Perosa since the 19th century, while deceased former club chairman Gianni Agnelli was town mayor between 1945 and 1980.

Unveiling of provincial buck a beer scheme expected today
Even a brand like Laker, which once prided itself on its $1-a-bottle price point, is retailing at $1.95 for a 473 ml can. To encourage the province's breweries to lower their prices, Ford launched the 'Buck-a-Beer Challenge'.

The storied Italian club hopes signing Ronaldo will help it add to the European Cups it won in 1985 and '96.

Ronaldo's arrival had sparked rumours that the match would be moved to the Allianz Stadium, but the club made a decision to stick with the traditional bucolic setting.

Ronaldo signed for Juventus from La Liga giants Real Madrid last month, signing for the Serie A giants in a stunning £105million deal.

José Mourinho does not expect any Manchester United deadline-day signings
Asked if there was good competition between him and Jimenez, Bonatini said: "Yes, we are all here to help each other". But United are even more shorthanded by the quick turnaround between the World Cup and the start of the new season.

The former Real Madrid man, who moved to Juve this summer for around £100m was playing a bit of football tennis in training. Ten minutes later, he pressured Riccardo Capellini into an own goal to make it 2-0 to his side.

Not since 1995/96 have Juve won Europe's elite competition but with Ronaldo now in their ranks they've never had a better chance of ending that drought.

Old Lady fans gathered in decent numbers to see the five-time Ballon d'Or victor at Villar Perosa - in a rural area of Piedmont in northern Italy and cheered him on as Ronaldo showed his full array of tricks and impressed on his Juve debut.
