A screenshot of former Manchester United star Patrice Evra's chat with Cristiano Ronaldo has gone viral.
French defender Evra was Ronaldo's teammate during their time in the Premier League.
While Evra went on to play for Juventus, Ronaldo became a living legend in Real Madrid as his goals helped the Spanish giants win four Champions League titles and two La Liga trophies.
Since his move to Juventus last year, the Portuguese superstar has established himself in the Italian league.
Ronaldo is now the second highest scorer this season in Serie A with 19 goals from 26 matches.
But it's his hat trick in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday that has once again reignited the world's best player debate.
Ronaldo's prolific scoring record has constantly evoked comparisons with Barcelona icon Lionel Messi.
But Tuesday's stunning hat trick against Atletico even made Dutch legend Ruud Gullit admit that Ronaldo is possibly the greatest player in history.
Having lost the first leg 2-0 in Madrid, Juventus were facing a massive challenge in the return leg at home against a team known for their defensive football.
But Ronaldo once again rose to the challenge with three goals that sent Juventus into the Champions League quarterfinals.
The Portugal captain, though, seemed confident of winning what was a do-or-die clash against a dangerous team.
Evra, one of Ronaldo's best friends, shared a screenshot of his whatsapp chat with Ronaldo on Facebook.
The two friends chatted five days before the second leg of the Champions League tie in Turin.
Evra told Ronaldo that he had to deliver for Juventus in the crunch game.
"I know. We gonna pass bro. Home, we smash them," Ronaldo replied.
And it's clear that Ronaldo knew his team 'would smash' Atletico!
It's the extraordinary belief in his own ability that has made the 34-year-old Ronaldo one of the greatest footballers of all time.
