Matic a Ronaldo super fan?
After Portugal's 4-2 win over Serbia, Cristiano Ronaldo took time to slap high fives and sign autographs for a high-profile fan in the form of Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic.
Well, not exactly. Matic, who played for Serbia that evening, took his son and a friend down to wait for the Juventus striker to emerge from the locker room so they could get some quality time with the global superstar.
So Nemanja Matić just brought his son and his son's friend to meet @Cristiano after the match between Serbia 🇷🇸 and Portugal 🇵🇹.— MONDO Sport (@Mondo_Sport) September 7, 2019
Ronaldo took his time with the boys and also spoke a little bit with Matić.

Nice touch from Ronaldo there and further proof it's not what you know, it's who you know.
Martin Garrix is a Juventus fan!
Martin Garrix, hailed by many as the No.1 EDM DJ in the world, has firmly nailed his colours to mast as a Juventus fan.
We're not saying it's got anything to do with his friend, Netherlands international Matthijs de Ligt, joining Juve over the summer. But there might just be a clue.
The Dutch DJ was plied with Juve shirts, one bearing his own name and another with De Ligt's, at an event at the Mondovicino shopping complex.
He said: "What a beautiful new shirt! Congratulations and good luck for the season!"
