Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo has expressed his admiration for Barcelona defender Dani Alves. Cancelo has impressed City since leaving Juventus, playing a key role last season to win the Premier League title.
He’s in with a chance to help them win another one this season, but he has a way he can go to match the success of his biggest idol.
“In my place, my idol since I was a child is Dani Alves,” he said. “I didn’t see much of Cafu, I was very young. I don’t remember much.
“But Dani Alves, in my opinion, is the most complete, the best player in history.
“I really like his work, I love what he does on the field.
“But then again, the feeling of freedom he was playing with. The joy of playing this game, love.
“I never knew, but I love it. Sooner or later we will meet. We will have a wonderful conversation. ”
Alves is definitely a contender when it comes to the best right-handed player in history for being the most successful player of all time.
The 38-year-old, who has returned to Barcelona on a temporary contract this winter, has 42 trophies to count.
