The five-time Ballon d’Or winner said he would like to invite the trio to Turin or Lisbon to have dinner with him if they were ever found.
Edna whose full name Edna Carina Emanuel Caldas told Portuguese sports daily Record: “I’m happy and it just shows how humble he is.
She added: “This was something that all happened such a long time ago. I’m really happy at what he’s gone on to become. I never thought he would remember me so many years on.
“It shows how wonderful he is that he hasn’t forgotten small things like this from his past.”
