Despite being international for Germany, Robin Gosens is a relatively unknown player. In his new memoir, Gosens tells stories of a “slightly different way” to become a footballer. The 26-year-old German did not forget an episode with Cristiano Ronaldo that left him frustrated.
Atalanta and Juventus met in the semi-finals of the Italian Cup in the 2018/19 season. And it was after that game, in which Atalanta eliminated Juventus, that Cristiano Ronaldo disillusioned the left side of Bergamo’s team.
Still on the pitch, Gosens gained courage and addressed CR7: “I tried to fulfill my dream of having Ronaldo’s jersey. I went to him, I didn’t even go to the public to celebrate, ”says the German. “I asked, ‘Cristiano, can I have your shirt?’ He didn’t even look at me, he just said ‘No!’. I was flushed and ashamed. ”
It is public that the Portuguese player does not deal very well with defeats and perhaps the fact that his team has just been eliminated from the Italian Cup has helped the less sympathetic attitude. As for Gosens: “I went away and felt small”. “Do you know that moment when something embarrassing happens and look around to see if anyone noticed? That’s what I felt, ”said the German, quoted by the website“ Goal ”.
