Crotone striker, Simy Nwankwo, has revealed he tried to get Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt after a Serie A match against Juventus in February.

However, Ronaldo chose to give it to someone else instead.

Simy faced the Portugal captain once this season, after he missed their 1-1 draw at the Ezio Scida Stadium back in October.

During last year’s fixture, the Nigerianscored Crotone’s only goal the two teams in the Italian top-flight at the Allianz Stadium.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored a brace this time around as Juventus cruised to a 3-0 home win on February 22.

The defeat did not stop the Super Eagles striker from trying to swap his shirt with Ronaldo but he did not get it as the Serie A top scorer gave it to his compatriot Pedro Pereira instead.

Despite the snub, Simy said he is hoping to get a shirt from Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi even though he played against the Argentina star at the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.

“I tried to exchange the shirt with Cristiano Ronaldo, but he gave it to Pedro Pereira who is Portuguese like him,” Simy told Tribuna.

“I would [also] like those of Messi and Lewandowski.”
