Robin Gosens reveals unsuccessful shirt swap with Cristiano Ronaldo: “Didn’t feel like me”

Robin Gosens writes about his experiences as a professional footballer in his new book. He reveals a failed jersey exchange attempt with CR7.

National player Robin Gosens has revealed an embarrassing encounter with Cristiano Ronaldo in his new book “Dreaming is worth it – my somewhat different path to becoming a professional footballer”. The trigger was Gosen’s desire to swap jerseys with the Juventus superstar following a 3-0 win in the Coppa Italia against the Bianconeri 2019.

“After the game against Juve, I tried to fulfill another dream and pick up the CR7 jersey. That would have been an absolute highlight in my collection,” writes Gosens. “After the final whistle, I immediately got on my socks with him and thereby failed to attend the cheering crowd, which was rightly formed – priorities have to be set, friends. CR7, however, didn’t feel like me at all.”

Robin Gosens: “I was just shaved off the plate once”

Gosens explains: “When I got to him and asked: ‘Cristiano, can I maybe have your Jersey?’, He didn’t even look up, but just said ‘No!’ While walking. Ouch! I ran, at least I think , completely red and even ashamed for a brief moment. I had just been shaved off the plate, felt tiny with a hat. Do you know that moment when something incredibly embarrassing happens and you look around to see if someone might notice That’s how I felt and tried to smoothly cover up the situation. It didn’t matter, after all, we had just thrown Juve out of the cup. “

However, Gosens has not yet given up the dream of adding a jersey from the five-time world footballer to his collection: “Maybe I actually just pissed him off. That’s why Cristiano: If you want to make a young man happy later, the address of the club reads: Corso Europa 46, 24040 Ciserano. Greetings, “writes the 26-year-old.

Via Bocholt and Rhede to the Netherlands

Gosen’s background differs from that of most other footballers. Unlike most of today’s professionals, the native Emmerich was not trained in a youth performance center, but played for 1. FC Bocholt and VfL Rhede in his youth. It was not until he was 18 that he switched to the youth department at Vitesse Arnhem.

After a few years in the Netherlands, Gosens joined Atalanta Bergamo, with the northern Italians he became a regular and Champions League participant. In September 2020 he made his debut for the German national team.
