Cristiano Ronaldo had a detail that made a very pleasant impression on Emmanuel Gyasi, a member of Spezia
Emmanuel Gyasi, a member of Spezia, went through something that he will remember for the rest of his life in the match against Juventus in Serie A on March 2. The Ghanaian entered the locker room and Cristiano Ronaldo was there to hand him his ‘Vecchia Signora’ shirt after the Portuguese failed to do so in the first match between the two teams at the end of 2020.
“When he came up to me, he hugged me and asked how I was doing. I felt very happy. During the game, I remember that I was very nervous because we were playing well and the score was 0-0. He sent a ball over the crossbar and I saw him go into the tunnel after half-time and I thought I was not going to get the shirt, “said the 27-year-old in the first instance.
But when I walked into the locker room and saw him waiting for me, I was shocked. We got together and talked, ”said Gyasi, as reported by the newspaper AS from Spain.
A declared fan of the ‘Comandante’, Gyasi had asked the Portuguese for the jersey after Juve’s 4-1 win over his team in November last year, but was unsuccessful.
“For me, he is an idol and it was a dream come true. He is my idol and I always dreamed of sharing the field with him. I never thought it would happen so soon. I remember the first game. I went to see him, we talked, but unfortunately he couldn’t give me his shirt ”, recalled the Ghanaian.
“In the second game, just before starting, he came up to me and asked ‘Gyasi, how are you?’ I was in shock. How can you remember me? I was surprised because I couldn’t believe Cristiano remembered after so long, “he concluded.
