Cristiano Ronaldo is on a red hot streak ever since Lionel Messi overtook him in terms of Ballon d’Or victories. Ronaldo has already scored five times in four games in all competitions. The former Real Madrid-star inspired Juventus’ 3-1 win over Udinese in Matchday 16 of Serie A 2019-20. Ronaldo’s strikes were pitch-perfect as he found the net with utmost perfection. However, apart from his performance, Cristiano Ronaldo won hearts for different reasons.
What happened was: Gonzalo Higuaín was seen wearing the captain's armband when Leonardo Bonucci was subbed-off. However, the striker was also called-off by Sarri within 5 minutes. After that, Higuain gave the armband to Cristiano Ronaldo. The former Real Madrid superstar opted to offer the armband to Matuidi, who has been a part of the Juventus-side for a longer period of time. It was a very kind gesture from the greatest of the game.
🇵🇹 This happened yesterday in Juventus' game. Higuain was wearing the captain armband, got subbed off and passed it to Cristiano Ronaldo who refused to wear it and gave it to Matuidi because he's the longest serving player on the pitch.— FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) December 16, 2019
