Cristiano Ronaldo Waited In The Dressing Room To Give Me His Jersey – Ghanaian Fotballer Emmanuel Gyasi Shares Story
Ghana Blacks Stars player and Spezia attacker, Emmanuel Gyasi has shared his experience after encountering internationally celebrated Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.
In an exclusive chat with Joy FM’s Gary-Al Smith revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo has been his role model and it was a dream come true to finally have his jersey given to him by Cristiano Ronaldo personally.
He recounted how during the first leg of his team’s clash with Juventus left him heartbroken after Ronaldo could not give him his jersey when it was time for players to swipe jerseys.
However, in their return game, he was surprised that Cristiano Ronaldo was waiting for him at the dressing room and gave him his jersey and he could not hide his excitement after the ecounter.
“For me, he is an idol and this too is a dream that came true. He is my idol and I dreamt of playing on the same field with him one day. I never thought of it happening so soon,”
“I remember in the first game, I went to him and spoke with him, but unfortunately he couldn’t give me the jersey.”
“In the second game before we started the game, he just came to me and asked Gyasi, how are you? I was shocked, he remembered me! I was shocked because how can a whole Cristiano Ronaldo remember me because it has been a long time. Home and away games have a long time gap between them, so maybe he could forget that he promised a jersey.”
“When he came and he hugged me and asked how I was doing, I was very happy. Very very happy.”
“During the game, he was nervous because in the first half we [Spezia] played very well and it was 0-0. He had hit the crossbar and I saw him run into the tunnel after the first half so I thought I was not going to get the jersey but I saw him waiting for me in my dressing room and I was shocked.”
“After the game, we met in the dressing room and had a chat. He’s a very great player and a great person.
