Super Eagles winger Moses Simon has named Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo as the player he is modelling himself on considering his superb performances over the years.

Ronaldo is one of the greatest footballers in the world and has won five Ballon d'Or awards.

Barcelona legend Lionel Messi is the only player who has won more Ballon d'Or awards than Ronaldo with the Argentine having six.

After his superb performances last season in the French League, Moses Simon was named as the club's player of the year and became the first Nigerian to get the award at the club.

Moses Simon has now stated clearly that he wants to keep working hard like Juventus star Ronaldo who has now won two Serie A titles.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is the player I modelled my game after. I want to keep on working hard and improving like him,” Simon told Tribal Football according to report on Goal.

Having played for Levante in the Spanish La Liga before moving to France, Moses Simon also explained the difference between the two Leagues.

"La Liga is more technical, while Lique 1 is more physical. That is the main difference aside from the language too. For me, it is a big honour to have played in both leagues,'' he explained.

Although the Nigerian forward is currently happy at French side Nantes, but Moses Simon will not hide the fact that he loves to play for the Stamford Bridge landlords.

He even recently signed a new four-year deal with Nantes which will make him stay at the side until 2024 unless the Blues come for his signing.

And since the age is on his side, Chelsea may be looking for his signature in future depending on the manager that will be in charge.
