Injured Female fan who wanted dinner with Ronaldo gets more than what she expected from the Juve star

A Juventus fan, who was left bloodied after she was hit in the face by a wild shot from Cristiano Ronaldo before the clash against Chievo Verona, was taken by surprise when the Portuguese ace asked her to attend a club training session. Juventus went head-to-head with Chievo Verona earlier this month in a game that saw the table-toppers extend their lead at the top of the Serie A with a 3-0 win. Douglas Costa, Emre Can and Cristiano Ronaldo all found the net to establish a double-digit lead in the Italian league.


Prior to that game, however, a Bianconeri supporter named Elene Di Martino was left with an injury when the players were warming up. During the warm-up, a wild shot by Ronaldo flew into the stands and hit Di Martino in the face, injuring her nose and breaking her glasses in the process. After the game, Di Martino jokingly said that she expected a dinner from the 33-year-old star to make up for the injury.

She told Corriere dell Serra, “Cristiano is an idol for me and after that hit I expect him to invite me to dinner at least.”
While she may not have gotten a dinner, the fan was invited to a club training session by the Portuguese and was given a signed shirt as a form of apology. Di Martino shared a photograph of the shirt on Facebook with a caption that translates to “My gift for the wild shot. He [Ronaldo] is a champion on and off the pitch.” The writing on the shirt read, “For Elena, a hug – Cristiano”.

Juventus still sit eleven points clear at the top of the Serie A table and is next scheduled to face Parma in the league on Saturday but the defending champions last night crashed out of the Coppa Italia after a shock 3-0 defeat to Atalanta in the quarter-finals. Timothy Castagne and Duvan Zapata both found the net for the under-dogs to register a thumping win over a Bianconeri side full of big game players. Atalanta had previously endured a 2-2 draw with the Serie A table-toppers in December and on a cold Wednesday cup night in Italy managed to surprise everyone once again.


Despite the strong line-up, the Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. failed to register a single shot on target in the first half, making it the first time they couldn’t find the target in the first half in two consecutive games since March 2018.
