I feel in good shape and ready to go.”The Germany international took the opportunity to praise team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo for the impact he’s made both on and off the field at Juventus.Emre also hopes to win the Champions League alongside the Portuguese star after coming so close at Liverpool last season, where they lost 3-1 to Ronaldo’s Real Madrid at Kiev in the final.“Every footballer wants to play with Cristiano, he’s a big, big player and off the pitch he’s a great guy,” said Emre.Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“You can always talk to him, you can learn from him a lot and I think he gives a push to the team.”He added: “Last year, I lost the final but this year I want to win it, with him together of course.“I heard a lot of times this year when we played, they [fans] want to win the Champions League. I think the fans are really looking forward for it and really want to win it.“Of course everybody say you will win the Serie A but it’s very difficult and the last seven years Juventus won it, this year the eighth time and it’s not always easy, we have to train every day hard.”Emre, who has made 21 appearances for Juventus this season, will hope to help get the club back to winning ways at Sassuolo on Sunday in the Serie A.Massimiliano Allegri’s side are looking to bounce back following a 3-0 defeat to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia and a 3-3 draw against Parma last weekend.A busy 2 weeks ahead with 4 games!
