Ghana footballer, Emmanuel Gyasi has come out to speak about his double encounter with Ronaldo on the pitch this season. Gyasi recently revealed that even if his team lost on both occasions, he was happy to have received a jersey from the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
According to him, the Portuguese striker is an idol who he always dreamt of playing on the pitch with, but he never saw it happening this soon.
He added that Ronaldo had promised him a jersey during their first meeting, and he was shocked that the Juventus striker remembered when they met again.
His words, “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 cross bar 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.”
