Determined Malaga fan travels to Madrid to get Ronaldo signature after shirt saga

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was happy to sign a shirt for a Malaga fan before training yesterday.

The young boy, known as Manolín, originally was given a shirt by Ronaldo in the pre-match warm-up before Real's 1-0 win at Malaga. The shirt was stolen by other children and Manolin later jumped onto the pitch to explain the problem to Ronaldo, before being escorted away by security.

However, at the end of the game, Ronaldo made sure a member of stadium staff gave the youngster another of his shirts.

And yesterday, Manolin travelled to Madrid and waited outside Valdebebas for Ronaldo's arrival. The player recognised the young boy and was happy to sign the shirt.
