After superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was seen without a special badge on his Juventus jersey this past weekend, why he refused to don the unique symbol has now reportedly been revealed.
The 34-year-old was on target in Juve's 4-3 win over Napoli in Turin on Saturday night, in a game that was full of drama and top-quality football.
Ronaldo scored the Bianconeri's third goal with a left-footed strike into the bottom corner, giving his team a 3-0 lead at the time.
Supporters will have noticed that Kalidou Koulibaly, who scored the unfortunate own goal that gave Juve the 4-3 win, was wearing a special badge on his shirt, which is something the Serie A gives to players who win individual awards.
To earn his badge, Koulibaly won the best defender of the season award, while Ronaldo won the best player award for the 2018//19 campaign.
According to Marca, the Portuguese forward will not wear the badge on his jersey because he does not want to be seen as superior to or more important than any of his teammates.
Ronaldo is not always considered the humblest footballer out there, but this gesture paints a slightly different picture.
The forward is one goal away from bringing up 30 strikes for Juventus, having played 45 matches and assisted a further 10 strikes for the Bianconeri thus far.
