He recently revealed that Ronaldo is his big idol and he surely wants to follow in the footsteps.
According to Silva, Ronaldo has always been the man to set the bar for him since he joined Mufc and when he started playing for the Portuguese national team.
He added that he wants to achieve what CR7 has achieved in football even if he knows his path will be different.
His words, “My big idol? It was Cristiano because in my time he was already at [Manchester] United, and he was the star in Portugal,”
“I mean, I don’t live the same life as him, I can say for sure!
“But I imagine from what I see that it’s difficult because he’s a big idol, everyone knows him, everyone wants something from him.
“But I mean, my way, it will be good if I achieve the same as Cristiano because he has done a lot and he still does it now. But I think my way is different, and I’m focused on my way, and Cristiano has his own way.”
