Simy Nwankwo who is a player for Crotone of Italy had a post-match encounter with super star footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo.
During a league match in February, Juventus were winning Crotone 3-0. Simy was introduced as a 72nd-minute substitute for Adam Ounas, however, he couldn’t find the rear of internet for his team.
Simy Nwankwo said after the sport had ended, he tried to swap his shirt with Ronaldo but he didn’t catch on because the Serie A top scorer gave it to his compatriot, Pedro Pereira, instead.
Despite the snub, Simy said he hopes to urge a shirt from Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.
“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.”
Crotone were relegated from Serie A on Saturday after a 2-0 loss to champions Inter Milan.
Simy has scored 19 goals in 34 league matches thus far and he’s currently the very best scoring Nigerian within the history of Serie A with 29 goals, after surpassing Obafemi Martins’ record of 28 goals.
