Danilo with Cristiano Ronaldo in Real Madrid
CAIRO – 30 September 2017: Danilo Luiz da Silva, Manchester City defender, has revealed in an interview who have been the three players who have impressed him most in training session. Danilo, who has lived with great stars in both Real Madrid and Manchester City, has forgotten one of them when it comes to answering this curious but specific question.
"I always tell my friends that there are three players that I saw do things from another world in training: one is Neymar, the other is Isco and the other is Marcelo," he stated in an interview with the blog “Ora Bolas”. His answer shows that he has forgotten Cristiano Ronaldo, the star of Real Madrid.
Danilo, who did not triumph at Real Madrid, said about the Portuguese star that "Cristiano is different; he wants to score goals. But Marcelo is incredible; he likes the ball, like Isco; they are almost in terms of skill and technical quality. Marcelo is the best of them all.”
In the same interview, Danilo highlighted the good work done by Pep Guardiola at City. "Being able to work with Guardiola gives me immense happiness, because in addition to being a coach with a lot of quality, he is a professional I have always admired; he is a super competitive person, which is something that I am looking for myself," said Danilo.
