Ronaldo’s defining display shows ‘fino alla fine’ spirit is alive at Juventus | Eni Aluko | Football

The Juventus motto is “fino alla fine” – in other words, until the end. On Tuesday evening the men’s team proved these words are not empty but alive. Juve aspire to be a team who never give up, a team who burn with an indefatigable spirit, and this week it was there for all to see.They showed it against Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season, when they came back from a 3-0 first-leg deficit to level the tie at the Bernabéu, an incredible comeback that ended in disappointment when a late Cristiano Ronaldo penalty decided it in Real’s favour. This year it was a different Madrid club, a 2-0 deficit and Ronaldo – now wearing Juve’s famous black and white – decided matters from the spot again.Cristiano Ronaldo: the king of Europe who has normalised the abnormal Read more I had tickets to Tuesday’s game but the women’s team had a match in Milan on Wednesday, the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final, and travelled the day before, so instead of being at the stadium we watched it together at the team hotel. It was hugely inspiring. We share the same shirt and philosophy, and the timing was perfect for what is a crucial month towards the end of the season. The following night, inspired and motivated by the performance of the men’s team, we went a goal down and came back to win 2-1. We are all part of a culture at the club that strives for excellence across the board, with that fino alla fine spirit at the core of our mentality.I thought it would be tough to come back against Atlético Madrid, primarily because the men have not been tested that much this season, especially in Serie A, where they are 18 points ahead. When they have been truly pushed in the Champions League, they have lost: at home to Manchester United in the group stage, and at the Wanda Metropolitano against a tough, stubborn Atlético side known for their exceptional defence. Many doubted the team’s ability to come back but that spirit is built into the side, and they found a way from the first minute to put Atlético under waves of pressure.Last summer the men’s team moved to a new training ground at Continassa while we work at their old one, so I have not been able to see evidence of Ronaldo’s legendary commitment with my own eyes, but I know his dedication has continued since he moved to Turin. He asks a lot of questions and always wants to know why he’s doing what he’s doing. His mentality, work ethic and the drive that has powered him towards greatness inspire all of us individually and collectively. The recipe for perfection starts with hard work.

I went to that game against United,...
