Internazionale defender Juan Jesus hails Cristiano Ronaldo as his idol
Internazionale defender Juan Jesus has labelled Cristiano Ronaldo as his football idol.
The 22 year-old, who was signed from Internacional in January 2012, also praised former Brazil international Lúcio and wishes Thiago Motta played for the Seleção, rather than Italy.
“The player who most inspired me was Lúcio, while I’d love to have Thiago Motta in the Brazil squad,” he said in a Twitter question and answer session.
“My idol in football is Cristiano Ronaldo and the best I played with was without doubt [Philippe] Coutinho. He did some crazy things and is also a very good friend.”
