Ronaldo's Juventus drawn with Manchester United in UCL

The Croatian beat Ronaldo, last year's victor, who moved to Juventus in July after helping his team win the Champions League final in Kiev against Salah's Liverpool.

At Old Trafford he established himself as one of the best players in the world and won the first of his Ballons d'Or while at United in 2008, the same year of his maiden Champions League success.

Group H: Juventus, Manchester United, Valencia, Young Boys.

In contrast, Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur will play each other in a testing Group B along with Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven, the 1988 European Cup winners.

Carlo Ancelotti, who became coach of Napoli in the close season, will return to the French capital, where he led PSG to the title in 2013. Group C: Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, Liverpool, Red Star Belgrade. For instance, English champions Manchester City can not be drawn against Spanish champions Barcelona.

The football agent was quoted by Record saying his client deserved the title saying Ronaldo had conquered the Champions League and was the most deserving of the award.

"As I have always said, I am at the best club in the world, where I want to be". Europe's top 32 sides from last season will fight for the European Champions crown, which will ultimately be decided on June 2, 2019 at Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, Spain.

Begiristain added: "The Champions League is very important every season. When I felt exhausted, and the pain started, I stopped playing and now I enjoy my family and my life in Madrid".

"No disrespect to Shakhtar Donetsk, Lyon, and Hoffenheim, but I can't see any of them giving Guardiola nightmares".

"We have Pep, all of his staff have been in Germany, so they now how strong Hoffenheim are", said Begiristain.

Atletico Madrid, AS Monaco and Borussia Dortmund were drawn together in an evenly-balanced Group A completed by Club Bruges.
