AC Milan Winger Leao Reveal He Prefers Ronaldo To Teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Milan winger Rafael Leao was asked who he preferred to work with between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo. ‘I’m happier to be able to share the pitch with Ronaldo’.

The Rossoneri youngster is currently preparing for Portugal’s World Cup Qualifiers against the Republic of Ireland and Serbia.

Leao, capped twice by Portugal, arrived at Milan in August 2019 and has established himself as an important played in the Rossoneri squad.

The 22-year-old has played all 16 competitive games so far this term, contributing five goals across Serie A and the Champions League.

He looks forward to the next games with the national team and stressed Portugal have ‘the desire to win’ every game.

“We face a strong competitive team [Rep of Ireland],” Leoa said at a press conference. “But we enter with the desire to win because we are Portugal, it’s important to score points.

“We expect two finals, we don’t play for a draw. We want to win both games to climb to the top of the group. Ireland and Serbia are two very strong teams, maybe we will be a bit nervous about qualifying, but we will be focused and with our qualities, we will be strong.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic arrived at San Siro six months after Leao and the young winger revealed the Swede is like an ‘older brother’ to him, but picked Ronaldo when was asked if he prefers to work with the Swede or the Portugal captain.

“They are two great players that I admire a lot, I always try to learn from them,” he said. “But obviously I’m happier to be able to share the pitch with Ronaldo.

“He’s a player that I really admire very much.”

Leao was quick to clarify his words on Twitter after the press conference and wanted to silence the reports by saying he enjoys playing with both of them
