I’m not sure why he decided to do it. I’m guessing that girl he gave the gift to is a big fan and wanted to meet him?
I read that he flew in after the Champions League game and did a taping that lasted about an hour and a half.
I’ve never heard of the show but it gets big tv ratings, probably partially due to the celebrity guests. Édinson Cavani and Andrea Pirlo are supposedly scheduled to appear on it as well.
