Eagles & Akwa United Star Muazam Reveals Why He Prefers Ronaldo To Kanu


Nigeria midfielder Alhassan Ibrahim has revealed that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is his role model.


The 20-year-old’s playing style has been compared to Nigeria legend Nwankwo Kanu, but he feels he’s faster than the former Arsenal attacker.

“I know people are saying I play like Kanu, even when I was with the Golden Eaglets.

“Am young, I didn’t get to watch a lot of Kanu’s games at the top level, but I went to YouTube to watch some of his clips, how he played and why people are comparing me and him.

“I admire Kanu, he’s a very intelligent player but we are different. He’s slow but am fast, but Kanu is more intelligent and I try to learn from what he did.

“In the modern game, my role model is Cristiano Ronaldo. I just like how he works hard, his hunger to achieve.

“I admire him a lot and I always try to emulate some of his moves.”
