'I don't feel pressure replacing Ronaldo'

Serie A

Juventus striker Moise Kean insists he feels no pressure replacing Cristiano Ronaldo after joining the club on deadline day.

Ronaldo left Turin in the final days of the recent transfer window in order to complete a return to Manchester United, leaving Juventus a little light in the attack.

Juventus responded by re-signing Kean from Everton and while he was not prolific during his first spell in Turin, he managed to score 17 goals in Ligue 1 while on loan at Paris Saint-Germain last season.

"I don’t feel any pressure in replacing Ronaldo," Kean said, as per Goal.

"I just want to lend a hand to the team where I grew up and where I lived good times.

"I just want to play, I have no pressure, I just feel the responsibility of wearing the Juventus shirt.

"I've always loved playing for this club. As soon as the opportunity arose, there was no doubt in my mind and I made the right choice. Juventus have always had a place in my heart.

"I'm very lucky to have experienced different leagues like the Premier League and Ligue 1 at my age. I've learnt a lot and now I'm ready to give my all for this team.

"I'm here to help the team. This is the club where I grew up and I have lots of great memories. I do feel a sense of responsibility in playing for Juve but it's not a burden.

"We have a young team with lots of experience. We haven't made the best of starts but Juventus always aim high and I'm sure we'll achieve great results.

"Allegri is a coach who always aims for the top and he's taught me lots of things. The Malmo game was good for morale. We're ready for our match against AC Milan on Sunday."
