"After the game against Juventus, I tried to fulfil my dream of having Ronaldo's 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!'"
"I was completely blushed and ashamed. I went away and felt small.
"You know that moment when something embarrassing happens and you look around to see if anyone noticed it?
"That's what I felt and tried to hide it."
