In a social media Q&A, Perin, on-loan with Genoa, detailed how Ronaldo went out of his way to help him last summer.
He recalled: “Arrogant? No, he is not arrogant.
"In the summer, when I went to sign for Benfica, which didn't happen, he helped me find a home, he told me I was making a great choice, he said nice words to me.
"In the locker room he is very present for everyone, he is a true top player."
