The setting is the sort likely to make you feel weak at the knees. Juventus Stadium, packed to the rafters with passionate fans, all primed for Juve's next challenge. It was there, at pitchside just minutes before kick-off, that Cristina met Paul Pogba.
Cristina Tallevi is a Juventus Premium Member. After every game, having watching the Bianconeri in action, she votes for her man of the match via the official Bianconeri community poll. Her passion and consistency paid off because she was selected to hand over the “MVP powered by Hanwha” award to the player who received the most votes in November.
And the man most clicked by J-Members last month was our French star, following a series of fantastic displays and key goals that helped the team record wins over Olympiakos in the Champions League and Lazio in Serie A.
That was how Cristina got to meet Paul one Sunday afternoon in December. After greeting the French midfielder, she took the MVP award and placed it in his hands, watched on by tens of thousands of fans. Her knees may well have been shaking but it was certainly an experience she will never forget for the rest of her life.
