Cristiano Ronaldo has sent out a word of appreciation to Edinson Cavani for agreeing to part with the No. 7 jersey for his sake.
This statement came after it was confirmed that he will be returning to Manchester earlier than expected following his suspension in Portugal’s 2-1 win over Ireland, the same match where he missed a penalty, scored twice, becoming the top men’s international goal scorer.
The Portuguese superstar who wore the No. 7 jersey in his first stint at Manchester United stated through the club’s Twitter handle: “I wasn’t sure if it would be possible to have the number seven shirt again, so I would like to say a huge thank you to Edi for this incredible gesture.”
The No.7 jersey at Old Trafford is regarded as one of the most iconic in world football, having been worn by legends such as Eric Cantona, Michael Owen, and David Beckham.
