W/S Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo arrives at press conference, Turin
SOT, Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus player: "I think the team (Juventus) is much better, we have more confidence, in my opinion we play a different kind of football, we play more in attack, with more (ball) possession. My role I think it's kind of similar, maybe a little bit more free... the way I feel comfortable, the way I feel good. So I'm really happy, step by step we are being in [the] position that we should be, (as) Juventus. Of course we have a different coach, we have a different system, we have new players, everything changed, but I think we changed for a better way. We are better, we are still improving, (there are) many other points we need to improve, but we are happy. We are happy because we improved weekend by weekend."
SOT, Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus player: "You know, football every year is a challenge, not just for me but also for Juve. We want to win, of course, the Serie A, we want to win the cup, we want to win the Champions League, and I think Juventus should think big, because big clubs should think in a big way. We are going to try to win the old trophies, we know it's going to be difficult - especially the League and the Champions League - but I think it's possible, step by step, I think everything is possible. In terms of individual I don't have nothing to say because the individual (level) it's not the most important, the most important are the collective awards, as I mentioned before, because if you win collective awards you have more chances to win individual awards, so I think this is where we are, this is where I am. The Golden Ball for me comes in a second place."
SOT, Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus player: "I'm happy because we play more forward, we play with more confidence, we create a lot of chances, we don't score much but we create a lot, which is important as well, and we are at the top of the League, we are good in the Champions (League). Good. The season started two months ago, one month ago, and we had many things to improve, but so far I think I'm happy and the team are happy as well."

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo said he is satisfied with his team's more decisive approach this season, while speaking at a press conference in Turin on Monday, ahead of Juve's Champions League Group D fixture with Lokomotiv Moskva.
The 34-year old forward won six consecutive games with Juve across the Italian Serie A and the Champions League, including the last match against Bologna on Saturday.
"I'm happy because we play more forward, we play with more confidence, we create a lot of chances," said Ronaldo.
"Nobody asked about Lokomotiv (Moskva)!" joked Ronaldo as the conference concluded.
The Portuguese player scored his 700th goal while playing for Portugal national team last week, but denied being interested in winning the Ballon d'Or, which will be awarded in December.
Juventus will try to keep its atop position in Group D when meeting Lokomotiv Moskva in Turin on Tuesday.
