Simy Nwankwo in a shirt swap with Cristiano Ronaldo


Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo lamented how Cristiano Ronaldo refused to exchange shirts with him after Crotona’s Serie A clash with Juventus.

The Nigeria international, who plays for Crotone, said he was disappointed after the Portuguese super star turned down his offer to swap shirts.

Simy wanted to have Ronaldo’s jersey but the former Real Madrid star gave the jersey to compatriot Pedro Pereira.

The Super Eagles star has said he is looking forward to the jerseys of Argentina superstar Lionel Messi and that of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

“I tried to exchange the shirt with Cristiano Ronaldo, but he gave it to Pedro Pereira who is Portuguese like him,” Nwankwo told Tribuna.
