Danilo may no longer be at Real Madrid but he still considers two of his former teammates, Marcelo and Isco as some of the best players he has seen, alongside his fellow countryman Neymar.
“I’ll tell my friends that there are 3 players who I have seen do other-worldly things in training,” he said in an interview with Ora Bolas.
“One is Neymar, another is Isco and the other is Marcelo.” said the Manchester City full back.
“Marcelo is incredible, as he wants the ball, just like Isco.”
“In terms of ability and quality, he is the best of all.”
He was then asked about Cristiano Ronaldo to which he replied,
“Ronaldo is different as he targets goals and the result.”
He also discussed his move to Premier League and how he find it so far.
“[The Change] was not easy,” he admitted.
“It took a lot, but now I’m very happy in Manchester. We’ve been warmly welcomed.”
Another topic of discussion was his new boss Pep Guardiola.
“Being able to work with Pep Guardiola makes me really happy because he’s a professional I’ve always admitted, as well as a talented professional.”
Danilo has featured 6 times for City since his move.
