"I was shocked because how can a whole Cristiano Ronaldo remember me because it has been a long time. Home and away games have a long time gap between them, so maybe he could forget that he promised a jersey.
“When he came and he hugged me, and asked how I was doing, I was very happy. Very very happy.
“During the game he was nervous because in the first half we [Spezia] played very well and it was 0-0.
"He had hit the cross bar and I saw him run into the tunnel after the first half so I thought I was not going to get the jersey but I saw him waiting for me in my dressing room and I was shocked.
“After the game, we met in the dressing room and had a chat. He’s a very great player and a great person.”
