That moment when the wildest of your wishes comes true. That’s exactly what a little boy from Banepa experienced recently when he received a signed jersey from football ace Cristiano Ronaldo! Yes, according to an article published by Ratopati.com, Mirror Online reported that the lucky lad to get such a gift is 13-year-old Jetin Shrestha.
Jetin was playing football when the devastating earthquake took place on April 25, 2015 (Baisakh 12, 2072). He stopped during the tremor and once it stopped, he continued with his game unaware of the magnitude of what had just happened. He wasn’t aware that photographer Omar Havana and Portuguese-based journalist Magarida Motawere observing his passion for football. Jetin later expressed his love for Ronaldo and Real Madrid to them, saying “I love Cristiano Ronaldo, I love Real Madrid. One day I would love to also play for Real Madrid, because I love football.”
After getting to know his admiration for the Portuguese footballer, Mota got in touch with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes and told him about Jetin. The surprise package arrived earlier this week. The jersey read, “Jetin be strong, best wishes. Cristiano Ronaldo”.
