One of the most standout qualities of CR7 is confidence, and a chat with Patrice Evra shows just how much belief he has in his abilities.

In 2019, ahead of the Champions League last-16 second-leg clash against Atletico Madrid, Juventus found themselves at a huge disadvantage.

The Serie A side had succumbed to a 2-0 defeat in the first leg at home, meaning a tremendous effort was needed in Turin to keep the team alive in the competition.

Juve’s comeback had seemed unlikely by even some of the most optimistic fans, but Cristiano Ronaldo took it upon himself to give the fans a magical night.

The Champions League record goalscorer netted a hat-trick against Atleti as his side advanced to the League quarter-finals on 3-2 aggregate.

A Manchester United teammate, Patrice Evra, was quick to share a conversation with Ronaldo prior to the game.

The screenshot of the WhatsApp chat that Evra shared on his Instagram account just went on to show how confident the Portuguese forward is in himself.

“Bro I’m counting on you for the Champions League return!!! I never doubted about you!! And people kill me every time you lose of Juventus,” Evra said, starting the conversation.

“I know. We gonna pass bro. Home we smash them,” Ronaldo texted back.

“Exactly!!!!! Viva Ronaldo,” Evra said in response.
