Gosens' Atalanta teammate Hans Hateboer brilliantly surprised the German defender by handing him this special gift.
A video shows the moment Gosens opened his present and revealed the Ronaldo jersey as Hateboer watched on along with others inside the dressing room.
Speaking in his 'Dreams are Worthwhile' biography, Gosens had recalled the incident as he said, "After the game against Juventus, I tried to fulfil my dream of having [a] Ronaldo jersey."
He added, "After the final whistle I went to him, having not even gone public to celebrate [...] but Ronaldo did not accept. I asked: 'Cristiano, can I have your shirt?' He didn't even look at me, he just said: 'No!'"
Explaining his reaction to Ronaldo's rejection, Gosens said, "I was completely blushed and ashamed. I went away and felt small. You know that moment when something embarrassing happens and you look around to see if anyone noticed it? That's what I felt and tried to hide it."
Gosens’ teammates in the video are seen joking about the fact that Ronaldo turned him down and decided to prank him and make sure he got a CR7 shirt in the end.
