8:48 AM PT -- So, laugh all you want ... but Ronaldo just scored a HAT TRICK as Juventus steam rolled Cagliari Calcio in a 4-0 victory. Keep the Shuffle pal.
THIS IS NOT A PHOTO FROM 2010!!!
This is Cristiano Ronaldo wearing an iPod Shuffle -- and it was shot TODAY!! In 2020!!!
The Juventus superstar arrived at Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy to take on Cagliari Calcio on Monday sporting the Apple music device, which was discontinued back in 2017.
CR7's being clowned on social media for the device -- no one can figure out why such a rich, powerful and stylish guy wouldn't update his tech! We did some digging, you can find a Shuffle on eBay for like $20.
Some people think he's using it as a distraction to take the attention off of his new top knot hairstyle!
FYI, Apple stopped updating the Shuffle in 2010 -- letting it die a slow and painful death after realizing most people were using their phones for music storage instead of a separate device.
Still better than a Zune, right!?
