According to Gyasi, receiving a kit from his idol is a ‘dream come true.

“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,” he told Joy Sports

Gyasi initially missed out on Ronaldo’s jersey when Spezia hosted Juventus in the Serie A.

However, the Portuguese great honoured the 27-year-old’s desire when Spezia visited Juventus in the reverse fixture.

“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 crossbar 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,” he said

Gyasi concluded that the five-time UEFA Champions League winner is not only an extraordinary footballer but also a ‘great person

“After the game, we met in the dressing room and had a chat. He’s a very great player and a great person.”
