Ronaldo gives Australia star Kerr an IG shout-out after Chelsea Women signing

If you think you’re the world’s biggest Sam Kerr fan, you’re wrong. That honour lies with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Juventus star took to Instagram to give one of WA’s best sporting exports a shout-out following news of her lucrative Women’s Super League deal with Chelsea.

Ronaldo shared one of Kerr’s posts with his 189 million followers, with the caption, “Another dream in the making.”

Both Ronaldo and Kerr are contracted Nike athletes, with the West Australian previously going on the record with her admiration for the former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar.

She once famously skipped accepting a WA Sports Star of the Year award so that she could attend the superstar’s star-studded birthday party.

Kerr will move to Chelsea on a two and a half-year contract when the mid-season transfer window opens, after dominant seasons in the US and Australia and at international level.
