Cristiano Ronaldo constantly keeps impressing with both his on and off the pitch actions, and another instance occurred last night.

After Gonzalo Higuain was subbed off, the Argentinian gave the captain’s armband to Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, the Portuguese didn’t want it, due to being at the club for just over a year.

Instead, he handed it over to Matuidi – the longest-serving member of the club.

Even though Leonardo Bonucci and Gigi Buffon were there, both of them rejoined Juve after Matuidi’s arrival.

This great act reflects Ronaldo’s leadership – and proves that he doesn’t need an armband to do it!
