Manchester City’s winger Jeremy Doku surprised the media and the fans with an impressive revelation about who his football idol is, and he sent a strong message about the comparisons between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, as he considers that one of them should not be under discussion as the greatest of all time.

Doku, who joined Manchester City from AS Rennes in the Premier League transfer market deadline to cover the absence of Riyad Mahrez in the team managed by Pep Guardiola, has surprised during the season with his quality on the pitch, having already left several great moments and games, such the one against Bournemouth where he gave four assists during the clash.

In this sense, according to his own words, the player would get inspired in a football icon who also started his career as a winger, revealing himself as a top scorer with the pass of the years, and becoming a football icon for many football fans, who still follow his steps and try to emule every gesture of him.

The Belgian winger didn’t hide his preference

For that reason, the Belgian winger didn’t hide his preference for Cristiano Ronaldo when speaking about the comparisons between the Portuguese player and Lionel Messi, which he labeled as a lack of respect. “For me, if you haven’t tested yourself by playing in England, you are still an average player. Cristiano Ronaldo is a legend in England, Spain, Italy and Portugal, and comparing him with Messi, who didn’t shine in France is an insult to Cristiano’s career because no one is even close to him”, said Doku.
