Atalanta star Robin Gosens spoke about the incident with the replacement of the T-shirt Cristiano Ronaldo which left him ‘embarrassed’.
Speaking of the incident in his biography under the title ‘Dreams count’, Gosens said:
“After the game against Juventus, I tried to fulfill my dream of having a Cristiano Ronaldo jersey.
“After the final whistle, I went to him, I didn’t even go out in public to celebrate … but Ronaldo didn’t accept. I asked, ‘Cristiano, can I have your shirt?’ He didn’t even look at me, he just said, ‘No!’ “
Speaking about how the incident broke him, Gosens said:
“I was completely flushed and embarrassed, I left and felt small. You know that moment when something awkward happens and you look around to see if anyone noticed it? I felt it and tried to hide it.”
The incident is surprising because Cristiano Ronaldo is usually very kind when asked to replace his T-shirts.
In fact, Ghanaian star Emmanuel Gyasi set out to meet Cristiano Ronaldo who was gracious, calling him a “great person and a great player”.
The future of Juventus Cristiano Ronaldo has been the subject of intense speculation
The future of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months.
The Portuguese superstar is still scoring goals, but Juventus’ exit from the Champions League against Porto could force both Ronaldo and Juventus to move in different directions.
The five-time Golden Ball winner is linked to a sensational return to Real Madrid and Manchester United and it will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few months.
Currently the leading scorer in Serie A, Cristiano Ronaldo has shown no signs of slowing down.
However, the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic could force Juventus to part ways with the Portuguese superstar and reduce their payroll.
Sitting in fourth place in the Serie A table, Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo will be under strong pressure to turn things around and ensure Juve return to their dominant results.
With Cristiano Ronaldo’s future also in the air, Juventus will need a decisive summer transfer window to make a strong comeback next season.
