Cristiano Ronaldo 'Refused To Swap Shirts' With Goalkeeper Who Saved His Penalty

Cristiano Ronaldo 'Refused To Swap Shirts' With Goalkeeper Who Saved His Penalty

Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly refused to swap shirts with a goalkeeper who saved his penalty kick - according to the keeper himself.

Stefano Sorrentino was between the sticks for Chievo when they traveled to the Allianz Stadium to take on Juventus in January 2019.

But Sorrentino became the only man in Serie A to save a penalty from the 35-year-old, who then proceeded to ignore Sorrentino at full-time despite Juve still winning the game 3-0.

The 41-year-old revealed to Sky Sports Italia: "We agreed to exchange our shirts, but after missing the penalty he was very angry.

"It had never happened to him in Italy.

"In the changing room tunnel we met, he gave me a handshake and congratulated me, but he had a bad face, and he didn't give me his shirt."

Sorrentino, who now bizarrely plays up front for Cervo in the eighth tier of Italian football, explained he ended up swapping shirts with Paulo Dybala instead.

"In the end I took Dybala's. It went well anyway."

Sorrentino credited his penalty save at the time to his extensive YouTube research.

"I initially I was looking for the attackers on YouTube, with Lorenzo Squizzi (former-goalkeeper).

"Before the competitions we watch the videos and together we decide the strategy, we were both sure that it would open the shot and that was it."

Another incident from Ronaldo's first season in Turin has resurfaced in recent days, when he was sent off against Valencia in the Champions League.

When Max Allegri was in charge of the 'Old Lady', he introduced a rule that meant any player sent off would have to provide presents for the rest of the team as an apology of sorts.

Wojciech Szczesny revealed on his podcast Prosto w Szczene that Ronaldo's gift came in the form of Apple iMac's.

"Yes, we all have an iMac," the 29-year-old revealed.

"It took a very long time because he couldn't process that red card and insisted high and low that he was not doing anything wrong.

"It took him a bit, about two months of arguing, but we all eventually received an iMac."
