Russell Crowe admitted that he is a huge fan of Cristiano Ronaldo, during his visits to Valdebebas yesterday, 29 April 2010. He came to Spanish for promoting his new movie “Robin Hood” where he played and produced.
“I was definitely looking forward to meeting Ronaldo because obviously he is one of the best players to have ever played the game,” the Oscar winner told the club’s television station.Crowe, who has a passionate for football, added,” I always check out La Liga table to see where Barcelona and Real Madrid stand, you have a great team.”
And after watching the practice match pitchside, Crowe was able to meet several Madridistas. Sporting Director Miguel Pardeza was the first to shake the Gladiator’s hand, as Crowe showed his own talent with the ball. Later on, he made his way to the gym, where he met and had his picture taken with Arbeloa,Raul, Pepe and Guti. He gave each players a baseball cap of his South Sydney Rabbitohs, an Australian Rugby team that he owns, while he received a Real Madrid shirt with his name emblazoned on the back with number “1”.
The most anticipated moment of the visit is when the actor met Cristiano Ronaldo. He had a small conversation with the Real Madrid star, taken pictures together, and their moments together ended Crowe’s whirlwind trip to Spanish capital.
“It was fun man. Obviously Real Madrid is a legendary club.”
