The 35-year-old has recently returned to Turin from Madeira where he trained with local side, Nacional de Madeira.
Speaking to Tuttosport, the clubs U19 goalkeeper recounted the time he spent with the Juventus superstar and the affection he has for the Bianconeri.
“It all happened suddenly,” says keeper Filipe Gonçalves, “so much so that even now, if I think about it, it doesn’t seem true to me.
“Cristiano surprised me positively from many points of view. After the third training session, when he realized that it would be the last for Hugo because he was returning to Lisbon, he chased him to thank him and also gave him a gift. And he did the same with me…..
“I can assure you that the most beautiful and unimaginable gift, and that it is worth more than anything else, was being able to train with my idol.
“Ronaldo is in great shape, he trained a lot in Madeira. When my colleague Hugo left, another partner of mine, Pedro Andrade, started working with us. He is not a goalkeeper, he is a player who likes to pass and cross. Let’s say he tried to serve Cristiano a bit like Juve’s Pjanic and Dybala …
“Ronaldo seemed to me to be happy with his experience in Italy, in Turin and especially in playing in Juventus. He told me several times that the club is very large, organized and has enormous admiration for the Juventus fans, who care so much about him.”
