Cristiano Ronaldo could easily be a superhero like Captain America thanks to his physical bearing and great power. What not many know is that Cristiano Ronaldo shares a team in Juventus with a player who was very close to being a soldier and who played American football almost all his childhood. This Juventus player lived on a military base for a long time thanks to the fact that his father was a sergeant in the air force. It is highly valued that Weston McKennie went to play for Juventus after almost leaving soccer to dedicate to American football since it was the sport he liked the most.
Weston Mckennie was very famous in recent days as he was one of those who scored a goal against Juventus has within its team a player with a military past and few knew about it, even Cristiano Ronaldo was surprised to learn the life story of his teammate in the Champions League match. The USMNT player converted a great volley goal that left the audience with their mouths open. McKennie is having a great season at Juventus but very few know the story of how as a soldier he ended up playing for Juventus.
Weston McKennie's father was still a great sergeant in the air force, so they accompanied him to different bases for many years until they finally settled in one in Germany where they spent most of their years of raising. There Weston McKennie had to stop playing football and try to find another sport. From there he started playing soccer.
Weston McKennie confessed with “AS USA” that the day he saw Cristiano Ronaldo for the first time he was surprised to see Cristiano Ronaldo live. McKennie had always dreamed of meeting Cristiano Ronaldo and that was incredible for him. Mckennie also confess that Cristiano Ronaldo calls him "Texas boy" in a friendly way and that they have a great relationship.
Today Weston McKennie is one of Juventus' young promises and stars and a great teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo. In the last Juventus game against FC Barcelona, Weston Mckennie could be observed having a great connection and relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo. If Mckennie continues to demonstrate this level he will surely quickly become the undisputed midfielder for Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus.
Weston Mckennie is one of the stars of the USMNT but finds it very difficult to return to his country to live or play one day as he feels that it is not safe for his family. McKennie is closely linked to the Black Live Matters movement and feels that if he returns to the United States he will have to worry about going out. For this reason, the future of McKennie will surely be for many more years in Europe and Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo want it to be in Serie A and with them.
