- McKennie spent one season with Ronaldo
- American has hysterical story about Ronaldo's feet
- Both joined new clubs this winter
WHAT HAPPENED? McKennie played with Ronaldo at Juventus during the 2020-21 season, his first with the Italian giants. And, as he prepared for his next chapter with Leeds, McKennie told one behind-the-scenes story about the Portuguese icon's feet.
WHAT THEY SAID: "One story with Ronaldo," McKennie began in a behind-the-scenes video put out by Leeds, "he was getting a massage and I was walking by and said, 'Oh my gosh, your feet look terrible!' and he said 'My friend, these feet are worth one billion euros'. I said 'You're right, respect'."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Both McKennie and Ronaldo are beginning new challenges this year, with Ronaldo heading to Saudi Arabia to become the highest-paid footballer in the world as a member of Al Nassr. McKennie, meanwhile, has become the latest American to join Leeds, where he will now play alongside Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson under Jesse Marsch.
