TURIN – During the championship game won by Juventus against Udinese, with a show by the trident made up of Cristiano Ronaldo , Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain, the Portuguese striker became the protagonist of a gesture as a true leader of the locker room. Upon leaving the field, Higuain left his captain's armband to Cristiano Ronaldo, his former team-mate at Real Madrid.
Ronaldo was flattered by this gesture but in turn wanted to make another one which was highly appreciated in the Juventus locker room. Cristiano Ronaldo humbly rejected the band and went to put it on the arm of teammate Blaise Matuidi. Then the former PSG midfielder thanked Ronaldo on social networks.
