João Cancelo: “Dani Alves is the best full-back ever.”

Speaking to Manchester City’s club website, João Cancelo talked about Barcelona right-back and Brazil legend Dani Alves.

“I’ll be honest, in my position, my childhood idol is Dani Alves. I didn’t watch a lot of Cafu because I was too young, so I don’t remember much from seeing him play.

“But Daniel Alves, in my opinion, is the best full-back ever. I’m a huge fan of his work, I am a fan of what he does on the pitch but also of the sense of freedom with which he plays.

“The joy with which he plays this sport, with which he loves this sport. He’s a role model for me in that regard. I love him as a player. I’ve never met him, but I’d love to. I think that sooner or later we’ll get to meet each other.

“I’m sure we’d have a great conversation,” Cancelo said.
