Manchester United forward, Jadon Sancho has come out to say that Cristiano Ronaldo has had the biggest influence on his playing style. He recently revealed that he also sees Ronaldinho and Rooney as his iconic role models.
According to him, even if he feels he has different attributes to all the other players, Ronaldo absolutely inspired him while he was growing up.
Sancho added that watching footballers grow to become icons at iconic football clubs is always a good thing to see.
His words on his role models, “Ronaldinho and obviously Wayne Rooney for England – those two are very iconic and great role models.”
“I feel like everyone’s different and I feel like I’ve got different attributes to all the other players, but obviously Cristiano Ronaldo and what he’s done in his career is a fantastic thing.”
“Where he started at Sporting and then he came to Manchester so it’s always good to see that all these iconic players have come through an iconic club.”
“To be fair when I was younger, on my estate in south London I just used to watch the older boys playing around and ever since then I just used to join in with them and started to fall in love with it, and then in school it was just always football and even after school it was just football. That’s when it got serious.”
“It was definitely cage football – all of that kind of FIFA Street, so when we saw the Ronaldinho adverts of him nutmegging people that’s what we tried to do.”
