One of the more enduring relationships in the game has to be that of Notts County and Juventus.
Back in the early 1900’s, the League Two side sent their famous back and white jerseys to the Turin side who were eager to change their kit.
They obviously liked what they were sent, too, with Juventus wearing the colour scheme to this day and obviously becoming one of the biggest names in European football.
Certainly, too, they’ve looked to enhance their reputation even further with the recent signing of Cristiano Ronaldo – something not lost on Notts.
Here’s what they had to say after the Portuguese’s arrival was confirmed:

Ronaldo’s in black and white, then, and it seems safe to say that fans of both Notts and Juve have had a good time discussing things like the chances of Ronaldo heading to Meadow Lane.
Let’s see what has been said:
We owe you our jerseys, our beloved colours. Since such a big part of our history belongs to you too brothers, Ronaldo is yours too ❤️ Still, we have to pay his damn huge salary! ???? a little contribution would be appreciated ????????????

Does that means that’s Notts County get him on loan for a few months? Wow decent!! Wonder if Kev Nolan can fit him into his new squad ????????????

I foresee in 5 years in the future, #NottsCounty on the Premier League and Ronaldo returning to England to finish the career on a high note!
