Juventus Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo Refused Shirt Swap As Player Felt 'Small And Ashamed'

Cristiano Ronaldo refused to swap his shirt with Robin Gosens as he left the Atalanta left-back feeling "completely blushed and ashamed."

Gosens, 26, admitted that it was a lifelong dream to own the 36-year-old Juventus star's shirt and didn't pass up the opportunity to ask after a match.

Speaking in his Dreams are Worthwhile biography, Gosens recalled: "After the game against Juventus, I tried to fulfil my dream of having [a] Ronaldo jersey.

"After the final whistle I went to him, having not even gone public to celebrate [...] but Ronaldo did not accept. I asked: 'Cristiano, can I have your shirt?'

"He didn't even look at me, he just said: 'No!'"

According to Goal, Gosens candidly revealed that he walked away from the failed shirt swap feeling "small."
