What happened when we FaceTimed Ronaldo and De Gea?

Tuesday 31 May 2022 15:00

Earlier on in the season our Little Devils, Zac and Charlie, visited Carrington to catch up with some of the Manchester United first-team to ask them some very important questions and to set them some challenges.

As a part of the ‘Burning Questions’ round, one of the things the pair asked Juan Mata was 'who is the most famous person in your phone and can we FaceTime them?!'

It only took a Juan a moment to come back with his answer and we weren’t surprised to hear that it was Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Cue a FaceTime call to the great man himself, but unfortunately Cristiano was unavailable at the time. Juan and the Little Devils left him a video message instead (which included a certain Ronaldo trademark celebration from Charlie) before they all went through Juan's phone and picked another United legend to call!

Find out what happened when the Little Devils tried to speak to Cristiano Ronaldo...

David De Gea was the chosen one in Juan's football royalty address book and David was delighted to accept the call.

Our no.1 was actually in the middle of a club photoshoot for the adidas Originals range at Old Trafford, but took time to chat to Juan and the Little Devils, much to their delight.

Zac and Charlie were hugely excited to be on the phone with David and, after saying hello, Charlie pulled out a special edition t-shirt to show our no.1 stopper from the incredible Stanley Chow collection, notably the one that features an amazing illustration of David. 

It seems David was a big fan of the t-shirt too and it's part of our Little Devils ‘Stan The Man’ feature which you can see later this week. The video also includes a host of first-team stars discussing their favourite memories alongside a number of their team-mates from the collection, so keep your eyes peeled for it and, in the meantime, you can check out the amazing Stan Chow collection here.

During the FaceTime call with Juan, David and the Little Devils, our no.8 joked with his good friend that he was actually the second option for a call, as David laughed and took time to chat with Juan, Zac and Charlie.
