Sevilla shocks Martial with hero message at presentation
Sevilla rolled out the red carpet for new loan signing Anthony Martial yesterday.
Martial completed his temporary exit from Manchester United on Tuesday and he will now join up with the La Liga title challengers for the remainder of the season.
Martial was welcomed to Sevilla on Wednesday morning where he met with the press and posed in the iconic red and white stripes for the first time.
And there was a genuine surprise for the Frenchman after he was sent a touching message by his idol Ronaldo.
The legendary Brazilian striker known as 'Il Fenomeno' was Martial's idol growing up, along with fellow Selecao star Ronaldinho.
Martial was forced to hold back tears as he was surprised by a message from his hero, while he was standing on the pitch at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan.
“Hi Martial, how are you? Welcome to La Liga and Sevilla! This is a big club in Spain and a big club in Europe," Ronaldo, now owner of Real Valladolid, said.
“They have incredible fans and play in a fantastic city. So I wish you all the best, and hopefully I'll see you soon. Big hug, best of luck."
