'I Was Too Embarrassed To Speak To Ronaldo'

A star playing in Italy's top division has revealed that he was too embarrassed to speak to Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo when he went up against the Portuguese recently.

Maradona: Why Real Might've Sold Ronaldo

AC Milan hosted the Bianconeri last weekend, and lost 2-0 courtesy of goals from Mario Mandzukic and Ronaldo.

Rossoneri goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was unable to deny the five-time Ballon d'Or's strike in the fixture, and spoke about playing against the 33-year-old, revealing that he could not strike up a conversation with him.

"It was so exciting to meet Ronaldo, because I was always up against him in my PlayStation games," he told Rai Sport.

"I didn't speak to him, as I was too embarrassed."

The shot-stopper also touched on Gonzalo Higuain's red card meltdown late in the second half of that match.

"We forgave him, he is a great guy and apologised to everyone. It was a very important game for him and the key is that he knows he made a mistake, so won't do it again. He even spoke to the referee and apologised to him too," Donnarumma added.

"He was so disappointed, I went over and consoled him. He needs to stay calm, because he can give us a big hand and I'm sure he will do."
