Gjoka spent the night in prison before he was allowed to leave the day after, yet he has stressed that the moment was worth the punishment.
“Honestly, first thing was look straight, find Cristiano and don’t look back. Just go,” Gjoka told Local10.
“But after that, I gave him a big hug, told him you’re one of my biggest idols, always followed you and I said, ‘Please, Ronaldo, don’t let the cops take me,’ and that’s when Ronaldo gave me a very big hug.
“I got the opportunity to talk to Ronaldo. It was a unique opportunity and I had to take it. It was worth the detention.”
The Portugal international netted twice to help Madrid to a 3-1 win over Chelsea in last week’s encounter.
