The internet celebrity, who calls the Portuguese attacker his “hero,” is a self-described mega-fan, and he would have been ecstatic to watch his “hero” play live.

Even the 17-year-own old’s song, Ronaldo [Sewey], an ode to the former Real Madrid great, has been released.

To Ronaldo’s dismay, he was not even on the substitutes’ bench for the Red Devils’ Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa.

The attacker has fluctuated in and out of the starting lineup as the Dutchman looks for his ideal group.

Last weekend, he did participate in a game, but the outcome was not what he had hoped for as Manchester United lost to Aston Villa 3-1.
