Al-Nassr forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has sent the son of his former Real Madrid team-mate Marcelo a special Christmas gift to Brazil.
Ronaldo and Marcelo spent nine years together in Spain.
For this Yuletide, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner sent a unique present from the Middle East to South America.
Marcelo’s son posted on social media after unwrapping a signed Al-Nassr shirt from the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
He wrote: “Thank you so much Cris. I love you. You are my idol @cristiano”
There had been talk of Marcelo following Ronaldo to Saudi Arabia when he brought a brief spell at Greek side Olympiacos to a close in February 2023, but he said of returning to his homeland: “We talked about this some time ago. I had some proposals to leave, not just there [Al-Nassr], but I needed to return here [Brazil], to my roots. Something told me that I had to go back.”
