- Late Juve fan Mario Stefanini made a dying wish for Cristiano Ronaldo in a note he left behind for his family
- It was his wish that the Portugal international score plenty of goals for the Allianz Arena side
- The 33-year-old has scored nine goals in all competitions so far this term
A staunch Juventus fan Mario Stefanini was said to have instructed his friends and family not purchase flowers but instead "send Cristiano Ronaldo goals" after his death.
The 77-year-old, who died earlier this week has been a long time supporter of the Italian League champions.
He had a chance to watch the Portugal superstar perform for a few months before passing away despite facing a tough start to the Serie A season.
However, the former Real Madrid star has overcome the nightmare - scoring nine goals in 15 matches across all competitions.
The publication reveals that Stefanini wasn't prepared to chances and made a humorous request to his loved ones in his funeral notes.
He specifically requested that mourners donate the money they would spend on plants to a particular charity instead to people from turning up in church or graveyard carrying flowers.
Juventus suffered their first defeat of the season in their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in their Champions League game.
But responded with a 2-0 win over AC Milan in Serie A in the following game as they remain atop of the league table with 34 points after 12 games.
Briefly.co.za recalls that Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez seem to be planning something big after going to check out a church which features in The Italian Job in search of a wedding venue.
The 24-year-old model has been displaying her luxurious diamond ring in recent times while enjoying short holiday with her spouse in London.
According to SunSport, the couple officially got engaged last week and they were reportedly sighted visiting the Church of Gran Madre di Dio (Great Mother of God), a grand 19th century building which appears in the 1969 film The Italian Job and has links to the Holy Grail.
